Last year, the couple was under limelight after Shami's wife Hasin reportedly claimed that the bowler is having several extra-marital affairs.
In a bid to expose the same, she posted several screenshots of Messenger and Whatsapp messages on her Facebook wall.
Shami's wife later accused the pacer of abusing her mentally and physically and registered a domestic violence case against her husband.
Shami has denied all the accusations made.
