No decision on Shami's IPL participation till ACU files report: Khanna

No decision on Shami's IPL participation till ACU files report: Khanna”

The latest development in the controversy is that Shami may now not participate in the IPL, where he represents Delhi Daredevils. The CoA letter made it clear that the investigations should only focus on the corruption charges and not deal with the other allegations "unless you find that the same fall within the purview of the BCCI Anti-Corruption Code".

Shami is now being investigated for match-fixing claims after the Committee of Administrators (CoA) chairman Vinod Rai instructed BCCI's Anti-Corruption chief Neeraj Kumar to probe alleged corruption allegations against Shami, surfaced during a reported telephonic conversation between the fast bowler and his wife Hasin Jahan.

Jahan has alleged that Shami "took money from a Pakistani woman named Alishba on the insistence of an England-based businessman Mohammad Bhai".

Rai has instructed the BCCI's Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) chief Neeraj Kumar to look into the corruption allegations levelled against Shami by his wife.

The CoA, led by Vinod Rai, had given a seven-day deadline to BCCI's Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) head Neeraj Kumar to submit the report on the issue. Yes, we are well aware about the sensitive situation and we are having discussions with top BCCI officials. After Jahan said he had multiple extra-marital affairs and there was more to it than what appeared on the surface, Shami's central contract was withheld by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

The other charges recorded against Shami are under Section 307 - attempt to murder, Section 323 - punishment for voluntarily causing hurt, Section 376 - rape, Section 506 - criminal intimidation, Section 328 and Section 34. "We are expecting that the report will come within a week", Khanna said after the Indian Premier League's Governing Council meeting at the BCCI headquarters in Mumbai. The GC has allocated Rs 18 crore for the opening ceremony of the 11th edition of the IPL whereas the budget in hand was Rs 30 crore. The IPL Play-off matches have been awarded to Pune while Rajkot and the newly-built stadium in Lucknow have been kept on stand by in case any centre faces any difficulty.

Unlike the previous seasons, all the eight captains will be present for the opening ceremony this time on April 7. Usually, captains playing on the following day of the ceremony miss the ceremony.
