BCCI can’t cancel Shami’s contract, says former legal advisor

Backing Mohammed Shami, former legal advisor of BCCI, Usha Nath Bandyopadhyay, has said that the Indian cricket board can’t cancel fast bowler’s central contract on the basis of his wife’s complaint and allegations.

However, if they do proceed, it will be illegal and wrong on their part.

"The selection (of a player) is done on the basis of merit and I have nothing to say if a player's contract is cancelled on the basis of that.

"If the contract is cancelled on the basis of a complaint by his wife, it would be illegal and wrong. BCCI has no right to cancel the contract on the basis of a complaint filed by his wife," said Bandyopadhyay.

Since her series of accusations have come to forefront, the Indian pacer has suffered a lot. The BCCI has put his central annual contract on hold until probe is completed while IPL franchise Delhi Daredevils too is perusing the matter closely.

Time and again, Shami has gone on record to say that he is innocent and will like to end the matter soon. He is ready to talk to his wife in order to win her back, giving enough hints for reconciliation. He even uploaded a picture of his daughter, showing how badly he is missing her since Hasin Jahan took her away.
