A key cog in India's pace attack, the 27-year-old was left out of the list of contracted players unveiled by the BCCI on Wednesday but the board did not offer any immediate explanation as to why. We have a tri-party contract and the BCCI defines that contract.
Meanwhile, his wife had stated that she would approach the BCCI to discuss on the same matter. "There is a clause about any player bringing disrepute but it is for the lawyers to interpret it", a senior franchise official told PTI.
A BCCI supervisory committee said the allegations had put them in a hard position.
Jahan had filed a written complaint with the Kolkata police on Thursday after going public with claims that Shami had affairs with other women. "We are waiting for their feedback".
"But someone could easily point out and say this allegation is an unsavoury one and you are still rewarding him (Shami)".
Shami is a hero in India, having played 30 tests for the national team as well as 51 one-day internationals.
"I think BCCI should not withhold Mohammed Shami 's contract as the issue has nothing to do with cricket and also he has not been found guilty yet", he said while talking to reporters on Friday. "Whatever the BCCI has done, it must have done after giving a lot of thought".
A First Information Report filed at the Jadavpur police station charges the cricketer and four others with various sections of the Indian Penal Code including attempt to murder, rape, criminal intimidation and causing hurt by means of poison.
Shami's mother Anjuman Ara Begum, sister Sabina Anjum, brother Mohammad Hasib Ahmed and his wife Shama Parveen were also booked. Following the registration of the FIR, police officials have said that would be sending a notice to the cricketer soon asking him to present himself before investigators.
