The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Wednesday asked its Anti-Corruption Unit (ACU) to investigate the match fixing charges levelled against Indian pacer Mohammed Shami by his wife Hasin Jahan.

"Please investigate the above assertions/ allegations under the BCCI Anti-Corruption Code and submit a report to the Committee of Administrators with your findings as to whether there is any basis to proceed further in terms thereof". She is even accusing me of match-fixing. The 28-year-old has been making headlines over the last week after his wife accused him of having an extramarital affair and assaulting her.

Earlier, Jahan sought "help" of West Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee in her pitched battle against her husband.

Shami, on other hand, is defending himself and has called all the allegations false.

Kolkata Police is now looking into various criminal charges filed by Jahan against India fast bowler Shami and his family, including attempt to murder.

In a press conference at the Bankshall Court, she sought the chief minister's intervention, reiterating that there's no question of a reconciliation.

Hasin Jahan and Mohammed Shami.

"It's a fight for truth by a helpless woman against a celebrity cricketer who has fame, name and money".

Saifuddin, who owns a general store in Suri, says that he and Hasin divorced in 2010. If I give up now, it will be the loss of face for the whole women community. Ive all the evidence with me.

Rai concluded his e-mail by asking Kumar to limit his probe only to the issues pointed out by him, unless he finds something which is within the scope of the BCCI's anti-corruption code.

On March 9, Kolkata Police charged Shami and his brother with IPC sections related to rape, domestic violence and causing hurt with poison. Hasin had recently filed an FIR with Kolkata Police against Shami and some of his family members with allegations including domestic violence, cruelty and criminal intimidation. "I'm anxious about myself and my daughter, so I sought police help", Jahan said during a media conference at her lawyer's chamber on Tuesday evening.
