Thought of suicide 3 times – Mohammed Shami makes shocking revelation to Rohit Sharma
Indian pacer Mohammed Shami made a shocking revelation in a live chat on Instagram with Rohit Sharma on Saturday. Shami revealed he thought about committing suicide three times while dealing with severe stress due to personal and professional issues. Shami credited his family for their unparalleled support during the testing times which helped him recover strongly.
Shami had a fall out with his estranged wife Hasin Jahan in 2018 when she accused the Indian pacer and his family of domestic abuse. Jahan also posted screenshots of Shami’s alleged chats with different women on social media.
A local court in West Bengal issued an arrest warrant against Shami in September last year in the domestic violence case.
While he was suffering from mental pressure due to personal issues, Shami also suffered a road accident in March 2018 sustaining minor injuries. After remaining out of favour from the Indian team for quite a while in 2018, he made his comeback in the Test series against Australia and there has been no looking back since.
“In 2015 I was injured at the World Cup. After that, it took some 18 months to get back (into the Indian team) and this was the most painful phase of my career. You know how difficult rehab gets and after that came the family problems. That was going on and in between all that I had an accident which was around 10-12 days before the IPL. A lot of hype was going in the media also with my personal issues,” Shami told Rohit on Instagram live.
However, Shami revealed it was not easy for him to deal with the pressure of personal and professional issues and he thought of ending his life not once, but thrice.
“I feel if I didn’t have support from my family, then I would have left cricket. I had thought of suicide thrice at the time. Someone used to sit with me in my house to keep an eye on me. The house was on the 24th floor and they were afraid that I might jump out of my apartment,” he added.
“But my family was with me and there is no bigger power than that. They were telling me that every problem has some solution or the other, just focus on your game. Get lost in whatever you are good at. So leaving all of it behind, I was practicing in the nets, I was doing running exercises. I didn’t really know what I was doing, I was that stressed.
“After practice I used to get sad and my family would tell me to just focus. My brother was with me, a few of my friends were with me and I will never forget them and if they were not there I would have done something drastic,” he further said.
Shami was instrumental in India’s brilliant run in the group stages of the ICC World Cup last year where he picked up 14 wickets in just four matches including a hat-trick. The pacer has become a vital cog of the Indian pace battery in Tests and was the leading wicket-taker for India in the longest format in 2019., Shami scalped 33 wickets in just 8 Test matches last year.
