Fast bowler Mohammed Shami has been cleared by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after the cricketer's estranged wife alleged him to be involved in match-fixing, but Hasin Jahan has now sought help from Shami's Indian Premier League (IPL) employers Delhi Daredevils, requesting them to bar her husband from playing in the coming season of the league.

Jahan met the Delhi franchise's CEO, Hemant Dua, recently in an attempt to roadblock Shami's career. 

"I kept my point in front of Hemant sir to not keep Shami in the IPL team until he resolves his family feud," Jahan told ANI.

Jahan alleges that Shami has multiple extra-marital affairs and also subjects her to mental and physical abuse.

Delhi Daredevils had retained Shami in the IPL auction this January by using the 'Right to Match' for Rs 3 crore.

Following an all-clear from its anti-corruption unit, the BCCI offered Shami the Grade B contract that was initially withheld following Jahan's allegations. 

Jahan had also approached the BCCI for help.

"Hasin Jahan met me with a request that BCCI should look into the matter," the board's acting president CK Khanna had told ANI.

"I told her that it was their personal affair which should be settled within the family. It would be in the best interest of all, including Shami, because he is in the Indian team and we would like him to perform well in the IPL and forthcoming England series," Khanna added.

Shami recently got injured in a road accident, following which Jahan visited him but he refused to meet her.
