Shami revealed, “When I got injured in the 2015 World cup, after that it took me 18 months to fully recover, that was the most painful moment in my life, it was a very stressful period. When I started playing again, I had to go through some personal issues, I think if my family did not support me I would not have made it, I also thought of committing suicide three times.”
He further added, “Someone used to stay with me 24*7, I was not well mentally, my family was there for me, if your family is there then you can get through any situation. If my family was not there then I might have taken a bad step, but I thank my family for being with me throughout.”
Shami was last seen on field during the two-match Test series against New Zealand.
Shami was about to show his ability in IPL 2020 which is indefinitely postponed due to the coronavirus outbreak.
