There is no end to the drama around the confrontation between India cricket team pacer Mohammed Shami and his estranged wife Hasin Jahan.
Hasin, who had earlier accused Shami of adultery, domestic abuse and match-fixing, now claims the cricketer hid his real age and made a fake birth certificate to play national and state-level cricket. To prove her claims, Jahan posted a photograph of a driving license on Facebook Saturday, claiming it was that of Shami, who plays for Delhi Daredevils in the Indian Premier League (IPL).
The Facebook post was later deleted.
As per existing record, Shami was born in 1990, but the shared picture showed his birth year as 1982.
Jahan, in her post, also wrote that Shami made a fool out of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and Cricket Association of Bengal (CAB) to play in age-group cricket.
Here is a translation of the deleted post which was written in Hindi.
“See friends, the real birth year of Shami Ahmed. He made a fake birth certificate and has fooled everyone by showing his birth year as 1990. He fooled BCCI, CAB and also public by making a fake birth certificate that allowed him to play Under-22 cricket. Imagine the injustice done to a genuine 22-year-old cricketer who was denied a place in under-22 team because of Shami,” Jahan wrote.
