Mohammed Shami played a vital role in India’s win in the last test match against South Africa. But the latest reports suggest that the right hand medium pacer’s family had to face embarrassment in a program organized by West Bengal Government.
On 24th of January the government of West Bengal organized a program to honor sportsmen from the state. Like all the top sportsmen from the state, Shami was also invited. But due to being in South Africa for national commitments Shami couldn’t attend the show and instead his wife attended the program on his behalf.
At the program Shami’s name was announced for a award. But contrary to popular practice, Shami’s wife who was present on his behalf was not given the award. According to reports this made Mohammed Shami’s wife feel embarrassed and insulted at the same time.
In the last test against South Africa, Shami played a vital role with his all-round performance. He scored much needed 24 runs in the second innings and took 5 wickets with an economy of 2.24
