Indian fast bowler Mohammad Shami has been charged with domestic violence following a complaint by his wife, the BBC report.
Shami, 27, has also been charged under laws related to attempted murder, poisoning and criminal intimidation.
The Indian international has denied all of his wife’s allegations earlier this week claiming they were ‘part of a big conspiracy’ against him and ‘an attempt to defame’ him.
Shami was dropped from a list of contracted players for the national team, which were announced by the Board of Control for Cricket in India on Thursday.
The charges put against the fast bowler, can carry prison terms of 10 years or more.
Shami’s wife, Hasin Jahan, accused him of being unfaithful during their marriage, along with claims of domestic violence.
Shami, who has represented India 87 times in all formats of the game since 2012 including 30 Test caps, now faces a wait to see what steps are taken next in the process.
