Mohammed Shami Wiki Wife Family Age Net Worth, Family, Affairs, Marriage, Wiki & much more. Mohammed M Shami (born 3 September 1990) is an Indian international cricketer who plays for the Indian national cricket team. He is a right-arm fast and swing and seam bowler, who bowls consistently around the 145km/h (90 mph) mark, which makes him a deceptively potent fast bowler. He is also known as a reverse swing specialist. He made his ODI debut against Pakistan in January 2013 where he bowled a record four maiden overs. He picked a five-wicket haul on his Test debut against West Indies in November 2013. On 23 January 2019 he became the fastest Indian bowler to take 100 ODI wickets. On 22 June 2019, Shami took a hat-trick against Afghanistan, and became the fourth Indian cricketer to do so in One Day Cricket after Chetan Sharma, Kapil Dev and Kuldeep Yadav.
Early Life and Career
Shami is originally from Sahaspur village in Amroha, Uttar Pradesh. His father Tousif Ali was a farmer, who was also a fast bowler in his younger days. Shami has a sister and three brothers, all three of whom wanted to be fast bowlers. In 2005, Tousif recognised Shami’s bowling abilities and took him to Badruddin Siddique, a cricket coach in Moradabad which was 22 km from their village.
After Shami missed out on getting picked for the Uttar Pradesh Under-19 team, Badruddin sent him to Kolkata later in 2005. Shami started playing for the Dalhousie Athletic Club. While he was playing for this club, he was noticed by Debabrata Das, a former assistant secretary of the Cricket Association of Bengal, who was impressed with Shami’s bowling and drafted him into his team, Town Club, with a contract of Rs 75,000. Das took Shami, who had no place to stay in Kolkata, to his own residence. Shami bowled well for Town Club, but could not get selected for the Bengal Under-22 team. Das went to one of the selectors, Samarban Banerjee, and asked him to watch Shami’s bowling. Banerjee was impressed with his bowling and selected him for the Bengal Under-22 team.
In order to get selected for the Bengal team, Das sent Shami to Mohun Bagan Club, which is one of the top clubs in Bengal. After joining the club, Shami could bowl to Sourav Ganguly at the Eden Gardens nets. Ganguly saw Shami’s bowling skills and asked the selectors to “take special care of him”. Soon after, Shami was picked in the Bengal Ranji squad in 2010.

On 9 March 2018, a First Information Report (FIR) was lodged against Shami and his family members by his wife citing domestic violence and adultery. Further, Shami was charged for attempted murder, rape and adultery which was claimed by his wife, Hasin Jahan. Hasin had also levelled allegations of match fixing against the bowler.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) withheld Shami from their national contracts list as a result of the allegations. On 22 March 2018, the BCCI cleared Shami’s central contract after its Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) cleared him of corruption charges.
