Mohammed Shami hurt in road accident

NEW DELHI: Cricketer Mohammed Shami was injured in a road accident on Sunday while he was travelling from Dehradun to New Delhi.

Media reports said Shami sustained minor head injuries. He is currently recovering in Dehradun.

Shami has been in the news after his wife Hasin Jahan lodged a complaint of domestic violence and infidelity against the cricketer. Shami has been booked under various non-bailable, including attempt to murder, and bailable sections. She had also hinted that Shami was involved in match-fixing.

However, the BCCI cleared him of corruption charges and offered him a contract.

Media reports said Shami is set to represent Delhi Daredevils in IPL. For this he has turned to the Abhimanyu Cricket Academy (ACA), run by Bengal batsman Abhimanyu Easwaran’s father, in Dehradun to rejuvenate himself both mentally and physically.

According to media reports, Abhimanyu’s father Easwaran RP said Mohammed Shami was safe.
