India fast bowler Mohammed Shami had faced some tough time in his personal life and the right-arm seamer made a shocking revelation while talking to opener Rohit Sharma in an Instagram live session. Shami told Rohit that he thought of committing suicide three-four times during the tough phase.
“I thought of committing suicide three times during that period due to severe stress and personal problems. I was not thinking about cricket at all,” he said.
Shami also revealed that a couple of his friends always stayed with him while his family asked him to concentrate on cricket and put his energy into the game to get away from the stress.
The fast bowler had become an integral part of the Indian setup.
Earlier, an arrest warrant was issued against him after his estranged wife Hasin Jahan had filed a domestic violence case against the fast bowler. Shami was then with Team India in the West Indies.
Shami’s wife also said that he is too powerful and a big cricketer and also thanked the judicial system while fighting the case.
The right-handed fast bowler had a pretty decent World Cup 2019 tournament. He even bagged a hattrick during the course. India though, unfortunately, bowed out of the tournament after facing a defeat against New Zealand is the semi-final of the tournament.
