Team India pacer Mohammed Shami was involved in a road accident while travelling from Dehradun to New Delhi. As reported, Shami has received stitches after enduring head injuries. Currently, Shami is resting in Dehradun.

As reports suggest, the incident occurred in the early parts of the morning at about 5.30 AM IST when Shami was travelling from Dehradun to New Delhi. 

Further reports suggest that Shami's car was hit by a truck from behind. The cricketer hurt his head and sustained a few injuries, where he required stitches on his head.

Sources confirm that Shami is being rested in Dehradun.

The 27-year-old Shami trained for two days at the Abhimanyu Cricket Academy (ACA), run by Bengal batsman and India 'A' player Abhimanyu Easwaran's father in Dehradun to rejuvenate himself mentally and physically. 

He had claimed that he has been under "mental torture" after his wife Hasin Jahan lodged a complaint of domestic violence and infidelity against him. Shami has denied all the allegations.

"Mohammed Shami is safe and sound. He was returning to Delhi from Dehradun after training when there was a minor collision with his car. He was taken to the hospital and got a few stitches on his head. He is perfectly fine and advised rest for a day. He is at a private place after being discharged yesterday only. He will return to Delhi tomorrow if health permits. There is no such injury which can hamper his participation in IPL," Abhimanyu father Easwaran RP told PTI today.

Shami, who was recently involved in a string of controversies after being accused by his wife Hasin Jahan for domestic violence, attempt to murder and match-fixing, has been given a clean slate by the BCCI and is eligible to play in the IPL and the upcoming tours.

The Team India pacer was absolved of all charges imposed after BCCI's Anti Corruption Unit (ACU) headed by Neeraj Kumar gave him a clean chit after a week-long investigation on allegations of having accepted money.

Shami has been given a clean chit to play for the 11th edition of the Indian Premier League and is been handed a B grade contract.
