Shoaib Mohammad is a news of past now. The glorious batsman recently surfaced in news but not for anything related to cricket.

According to The News:

Former Test batsman Shoaib Mohammad has filed a suit in the Sindh High Court against his former wife Huma and the wife of former Test captain Wasim Bari, claiming a compensation of 20 million rupees for the mental duress and loss of livelihood caused by the actions of the defendants.

The Court, admitting the suit, has summoned the parties concerned to appear before the court registrar on April 6 to answer all the questions related to the suit.

Shoaib, who has been fighting a long drawn out court battle against his former wife for the custody of his children, has, in his suit, claimed that the defendants Huma and Yasmin Bari — due to their actions — had caused him mental torture and duress which had resulted in loss of reputation and livelihood in the earlier case.

He has pleaded for a compensation of twenty million rupees from the defendants.

Yasmin is the wife of Wasim Bari who is serving as chief selector and who also holds a senior position in the national airlines.

The 45-year-old Shoaib, who is the son of former Test captain and batting great Hanif Mohammad, appeared in 45 Tests and 63 One-day Internationals between 1983 and 1995. He has also played and captained PIA and Karachi at the domestic level.

Shoaib has been engaged in a civil suit with his former wife, who is now residing in the United States, for the custody of his children and had included Bari’s wife and others as co-accused in his case. He had even filed a petition for contempt of court against his ex-wife and others.
