In the midst of Mohammed Shami's stellar performance in the ongoing Cricket World Cup 2023, his estranged wife, Hasin Jahan, has made headlines with a wish that adds a controversial twist to the narrative.
The Indian pacer has been in red-hot form, taking an impressive 23 wickets so far, including a remarkable seven-wicket haul against New Zealand in the semi-final match. However, the cricketing glory is overshadowed by the shadows of his past as Shami's estranged wife, Hasin Jahan, expressed a desire for him to be "as good a person as he is a player."
The couple separated in 2018 amidst allegations of domestic violence and adultery, leading to a bitter legal battle. Despite Shami's success on the cricket field, Jahan emphasized that a good personal life could have led to a happier family. She stated, "My daughter, my husband, and I could have led a happy life if he were a good person."
Jahan went on to highlight Shami's alleged negative traits, attributing their separation to his mistakes, greed, and a "dirty mind." She claimed that Shami's attempts to hide his flaws through financial means were futile.
When questioned about Shami's record-breaking performance in the semi-final match, Jahan expressed a rather neutral sentiment, saying, "I don't feel anything special. But it feels good that India has won the semi-final match. I pray that India wins the final as well."
On the topic of a recent proposal received by Shami from actress-turned-politician Payal Ghosh, Jahan dismissed it as a normal occurrence in the lives of celebrities. She refrained from commenting further on the matter.
The couple's tumultuous relationship has played out in the public eye, with social media platforms such as Twitter and Instagram becoming arenas for discussions on the Shami marriage controversy. Despite the legal battles and public scrutiny, Shami has remained focused on his cricketing career, recently securing bail in the domestic violence case filed by Jahan in 2018.
As Shami continues to shine on the cricket field during the World Cup, the personal controversies surrounding his marriage and estrangement with Hasin Jahan add layers of complexity to his journey, both on and off the pitch.
