Ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 campaign, Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami has landed into trouble after a chargesheet has been filed against the cricketer under IPC 498A (dowry harassment) and 354A (sexual harassment).

The case spells trouble for Shami as the next hearing of the case has been kept on June 22. The chargesheet has been submitted by the Kolkata police on his estranged wife Hasin Jahan's complaint.

The spat began after his wife, Jahan accused Shami of an extra-marital affair and match-fixing last year. She had also posted the screenshots of the alleged affairs on social media. Due to which, Shami was suspended from his contract by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) who then renewed it after he was given a clean chit in an internal investigation by the board.

Jahan had filed a complaint against the pacer in March last year, lodging a complaint at the Kolkata police headquarters in Lal Bazaar, accusing Shami of torture, physical and mental harassment.

While the decision of the truth behind the allegations lies in the court's hand, the charge will definitely lay a negative effect on the cricketer's career.
