As a major relief for Mohammed Shami, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) on Thursday cleared him of all the corruption charges put upon him. Shami was included in the central contract (Grade B) after the ACU head, Neeraj Kumar relieved him of the match-fixing charges.

Shami was not included in the list of central contacts after his wife Hasin Jahan alleged him of domestic violence and extra-marital affairs just a day prior to the announcements. The announcement of his inclusion in the central contract rejoiced many of his fans who flooded Twitter with congratulatory messages.

Committee of Administrators said in a media release,

“The Hon'ble Supreme Court of India appointed (CoA) had requested Mr Neeraj Kumar, former Police Commissioner of Delhi and Head of BCCI Anti-Corruption Unit, to investigate the allegations against Mohd. Shami in so far as they pertain to the provisions of the BCCI Anti-Corruption Code.”

The media release further continued, "Neeraj Kumar has submitted his confidential report to the CoA. Based on the conclusions in the said report, the CoA is of the view that no further actions/proceedings under the BCCI anti-corruption code are warranted in the matter. For this reason, the BCCI shall proceed with offering a Grade 'B' annual retainership contract to Mohd. Shami."

Expressing his happiness, the Indian pacer took to Twitter
