Long Fought Battle

A case was filed against Mohammed Shami and his several family members in 2018 based on an FIR submitted by his estranged wife Hasin Jahan at the Jadavpur police station. As a result, legal processes were launched against Shami.

Initially, the court ordered Shami to appear in court to be granted bail. Hasin Jahan, Shami’s estranged wife, filed a lawsuit in a lower court back in 2018.

In this case, the police investigated Shami and his elder brother and issued an arrest warrant for both of them. However, that warrant was stayed by a lower court in Kolkata. Jahan then petitioned the Calcutta High Court to overturn the lower court’s decision. However, the Supreme Court confirmed the lower court’s decision as well.

In the bride torture case, Mohammed Shami appeared in court for the first time. The Indian cricketer appeared in court on Tuesday, September 19, and requested bail ahead of the World Cup 2023, which begins on October 5. The plea was accepted and bail was granted by the judge.

Mohammed Shami was last seen playing in the Asia Cup 2023, which just ended. However, the senior played in only two matches because Mohammed Siraj was given preference ahead of Shami.

He has been included in India’s side for the coming three-match ODI series against Australia at home. The national selectors have picked two separate squads, with players such as Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, Hardik Pandya, and Kuldeep Yadav resting for the first two games.

Shami has been named in the squad for all three games. On September 22, the series opener will be contested at the Punjab Cricket Association’s IS Bindra Stadium in Mohali.

India’s squad for first two ODIs: KL Rahul (C & WK), Ravindra Jadeja (Vice-captain), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Tilak Varma, Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper), Shardul Thakur, Washington Sundar, R Ashwin, Jasprit Bumrah, Mohammed Shami, Mohammed Siraj, and Prasidh Krishna.
