According to sources, Indian fast bowler Mohammed Shami has got US visa after BCCI’s intervention. Shami’s US visa got rejected initially due to his existing police record on charges of domestic violence and adultery. 'Yes, Shami's visa application was initially rejected by the US embassy. It was found that his police verification record was incomplete. However now it has been sorted and all the required documents have been furnished. Once the visa application got rejected, CEO Rahul Johri wrote a letter of request, citing Shami's achievements including participation in multiple World Cups. Also the documents were furnished,' a BCCI source said.
