The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) Anti-Corruption Unit has given a clean chit to Indian fast bowler over the allegations of match-fixing levelled by his wife, Hasin Jahan. BCCI released a statement:
“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.”
Earlier, the Supreme Court-appointed Committee of Administrators (CoA) had written to the BCCI’s ACU head Neeraj Kumar to investigate the charges against Mohammed Shami.
A case was registered against Shami on the basis of a written complaint filed by his wife.
