Mohammad Shami, India’s pace bowler, has suffered minor head injuries in a car accident when he was traveling from Dehradun to New Delhi.
Shami has endured injuries of minor nature to his head and there have been stitches on his forehead as well.
The Indian pace bowler had participated in a training session at Dehradun in Abhimanyu Cricket Academy which is established by Shami’s Ranji team-mate and Bengal’s batsman Abhimanyu Easwaran’s father.
Shami was practicing in the academy as he is set to play for Delhi Daredevils in the upcoming Indian Premier League. On Sunday, Shami completed his practice and was returning to New Delhi when he met with an accident.
Shami was traveling in his car and his vehicle collided with a truck during the journey. Soon after the journey, Shami was admitted to a hospital where he was thoroughly checked-up and attended to for his injuries.
In the accident, Shami faced injuries to his head and has got a few stitches. However, the nature of the injuries isn’t serious and hence it won’t affect Shami’s cricketing future.
In fact, the bowler has been already discharged from the hospital and he is now being attended at a private place. If everything goes well, he will return to New Delhi by tomorrow.
It seems that nothing is going well for Shami since the past few weeks. He is currently booked for various charges under the Indian Penal Code, including charges of domestic violence and attempt to murder.
These charges were leveled on Shami after his wife Hasin Jahan publicly accused him of adultery, domestic violence and attempting to kill her. She had also claimed that Shami had indulged in match-fixing but an investigation by BCCI revealed that charges of match-fixing were baseless.
Currently, Shami is undergoing a legal battle with his wife and this accident has only added to his woes.
Shami’s fans will be hoping that the pace bowler comes out clean from all these issues as soon as possible.
