Controversies

However, his father dismissed the allegations and said that his family was being targeted because of Shami’s fame and their religion. Haseeb was later released on bail
  • His wife Hasin Jahan accused him in 2018 of having extra-marital affairs and torturing her for more than 2 years.

  • Interestingly, all the three real brothers of Shami aspired to become a fast bowler in their childhood.
  • Shami owes his success to his father Tousif Ali. According to him, his father was the only person who realised his true potential as a bowler and persuaded him to give the sport a try.
