Mohammed Shami: Mohammed Shami has become the second name of India's hope in the World Cup 2023. Cricket is a team game but at this time Mohammed Shami has single-handedly taken the burden of Team India's bowling department on his shoulders and is taking Team India towards the finals.

Recently, in the year 2018, Mohammed Shami's wife Hasin Jahan made many serious allegations against him including domestic violence, assault, match fixing. The matter reached the court. Even amidst these controversies, Shami kept his entire focus on cricket.
Shami, who often stays away from the media, shared his heartfelt words with the world during Instagram Live with Indian captain Rohit Sharma in the year 2020. He said, "I got injured in the 2015 World Cup. After this, I had to work hard to make a comeback in the team.
He told Rohit that you know how much time it takes to rehab. At the same time, I was also going through family problems. Meanwhile, I met with an accident 10-12 days before the IPL. My personal matters started being discussed in the media.
Shami told Rohit, I think if I had not had the support of my family, I would have left cricket. I thought about committing suicide three times. I was so devastated that my family became very worried. My house was on the 24th floor and my family members feared that I might commit suicide by jumping from the apartment, so some member of the family kept an eye on me.
Shami said that my family supported me a lot. My family is my strength. He is the solution to all my problems. He used to tell me that you just concentrate on your game and get completely lost in your game.
Shami said, I used to feel very sad when I used to practice. My brother, my family used to tell me that you just concentrate on the game. Many of my good friends supported me in difficult times. If he had not been there, I might have done something wrong.
