"If he really wants to change himself, if he is really serious about saving his family and this relationship, I am ready for a rethink", Hasin said.

Kolkata Police, which is investigating Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami under several sections of the Indian Penal Code (IPC), has written to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) to seek information of the route of his last match in South Africa.

Shami however, has requested thorough investigation in the case and the allegation levelled against him by his wife. "He would've run away to UP by now if I did not catch hold of that mobile phone, he would've divorced me till now if I did not have the mobile phone", Jahan was quoted as saying by ANI.

The family members stayed in Kolkata for two days but Haseen Jahan, even after promising to talk with Shami's family on Saturday, later she backtracked. If Shami has done something like this then it is unacceptable and disgraceful. But based on mere allegations poured by his wife - BCCI can not hold back his contract.

To everyone's surprise, Hasin Jahan, wife of Shami, has accused her 27-year-old husband of assault and having extramarital affairs by posting screenshots of text messages of questionable nature that Shami allegedly exchanged with various women. She, however, added she is circumspect about such moves by Shami and his family. He accepted money from a Pakistani girl named Alisbah in Dubai. This could be linked to match fixing. "Till the day I took to social media, I tried to convince him to save our marriage".

Hasin and Shaikh were in an affair and got married in 2002.

Meanwhile, the cricketer has rubbished all the allegations.

Shami has been slapped with non-bailable charges of domestic abuse and attempt to murder by Kolkata police following an official complaint by his wife. "I always stood beside her and I don't know why she is behaving like this now. Everything was fine till a week ago and I didn't what happened so suddenly", he said.

The case was registered under non-bailable sections 307 (attempt to murder), 498-A (subjecting a woman to cruelty), 376 (punishment for rape), 323 (causing hurt) and 506 (criminal intimidation).
