Internet Desk: India’s ace fast bowler and one of the biggest pride of Bengal cricket, Mohammad Shami and his family got humiliated today at the Netaji Indoor Stadium. Shami’s wife was present at the programme as the West Bengal Government invited Shami to confer the Khel Sanman Award on Wednesday.

Quite surprisingly, despite inviting him, the Government didn’t call up his family members on the stage to receive the award. Shami is busy at the moment in Johannesburg, as India is playing against South Africa in the third test match.

“It’s very disappointing for us Honourable Minister of State Sports and Youth Services Laxmi Ratan Shukla was also present there and also greeted us but they didn’t call me to receive any award. You have seen the letter where they marked Shami as a Khel Samman Awardee. Even the State Government neither call us nor send an apology letter to us."  Shami’s wife Hasin Jahan said.

Though the State Government cleared all the confusion as spoke to Mr.Sayeed Ahmed Baba, Principal Secretary of Youth Services and Sports he said, “We invited him as a guest not to give the award. Probably Shami’s family misunderstand the letter.”
