NEW DELHI: India’s fast bowler, Mohammed Shami, opened up on the darkest phase of his life when he tried to commit suicide thrice, while conversing with Rohit Sharma.

Shami’s life turned upside down after coming back from the 2018 South African tour. His now-estranged wife, Hasin Jahan, accused Shami of domestic violence. She also involved his brother and family accusing them of an attempt to murder.

“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 told Rohit on Instagram Live session.

Also, Shami revealed that he wanted to jump off the 24th floor of his building. “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,” added Shami.
