Mohammed Shami thought of committing suicide three times under stress
New Delhi : In a shocking revelation, India’s fast bowler Mohammed Shami claimed that he thought of committing suicide three times due to his personal problems in recent years.
He claimed that his family used to fear that he may someday jump for the balcony of his apartment on 24th floor.
Shami talked about it during his chat session with Rohit Sharma on Instagram.
“I think if my family had not supported me back then I would have lost my cricket. I thought of committing suicide three times during that period due to severe stress and personal problems,” Shami revealed during the session on Saturday.
“I was not thinking about cricket at all. We were living on the 24th floor. They (family) were scared I might jump from the balcony. My brother supported me a lot.
“My 2-3 friends used to stay with me for 24 hours. My parents asked me to focus on cricket to recover from that phase and not think about anything else. I started training then and sweated it out a lot at an academy in Dehradun,” Shami said.
In March 2018, his wife had lodged a complaint against him claiming domestic violence, following which the India player and his brother were booked under relevant sections.
