Though the message was not derogatory in nature, but Sophia shared the screenshot and soon it was all over the internet.

This isn't something new. He was involved in something similar recently.

It's going viral and it'll affect you as well as him. I personally didn't find anything wrong with that message. (Regardless of your bf/gf)It was just a greeting. You could have politely turned him down if you didn't want to talk to him. Wasn't s big deal. Was it?

Past not so perfect
You do know the controversies he was a part of right? Great cricketer, he's in the semi finals of the world cup but unfortunately has a past with regards to texting women on social media.

Last year, Shami was in trouble after his wife Hase
n Jahan alleged the cricketer of extra-marital affairs. Apart from it, Jahan also claimed that the bowler was involved in match-fixing and had done age-fudging as well.
Despite his personal problems, Shami continued to perform well and cement his place in the side. The pacer is currently part of the Indian team which has made it to the semi-finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 and will face New Zealand in the semis. Shami is four matches has picked 14 wickets thus far, which includes a hat-trick against Afghanistan. It was only the second instance of an Indian bowler taking a hat-trick in a World Cup match.
