Pakistani leg spinner Shadab Khan is one of the finest white ball cricketers going around in the country. He has played a good number of white ball cricket for his country along with having been involved in 5 Tests as well. He is a regular member of the team who is often talked about for his talent and skills but this time around, he is in news for some wrong reasons.
A Dubai based girl Ashreena Safia has come out to expose the real behaviour of the leggie. She posted a heartwarming post on Instagram accusing Shadab of harassing and blackmailing her.
What is the story?
Safia started her instagram post by giving a backdrop about her relationship with Shadab where she says that she has been in touch with the Pakistani cricketer since March 2019 and their relationship became more private & intimate during the World Cup last year. She even travelled to various countries on her own expense to watch Shadab and be with him whenever he was playing a T20 league like CPL or Bangladesh Premier League.
Root of the problem
However, the problem began when a Pakistani journalist clicked a picture of them together to reveal their relationship. According to Safia, she was more emotionally involved in the relationship while for Shadab, it was only a fling which is why when the latter came to know about those reports, he started to threaten Safia so that she doesn’t go in public to reveal the truth of their relationship. He tried to contact her from various numbers and even threatened to expose her by sharing nudes in public. She accused Shadab of blackmailing & harassing her and taking advantage of her innocence.

YES I see all the messages you guys send and it is very hard for me to accept but here we are. This is personal/vulnerable for me to share but I have a platform Alhamdulillah to do right. 🙏🏼 I’m sorry to all the girls who reached out for help when they were used and taken advantage of by the person I was with. Astaghfirullah that I believed his lies and unconsciously enabled his behavior. I have zero to gain from posting this but if I can help one girl become aware then I’m willing to jeopardize myself. I’ve been dealing with this since I moved to Dubai. Shadab is probably the first guy I’ve cared about so deeply and it’s hard to process this still. I cant address anything further for legal reasons so please respect my privacy. 🙏🏼
Shadab on the other hand, is yet to respond on this matter and it will be interesting to see how PCB reacts to this scandal. It is not the first time a Pakistani cricketer has been accused of being involved in such things. Recently a video of Shaheen Afridi was going rounds on internet where he was seen masturbating live on camera. Imam-ul-Haq had also found himself in trouble for allegedly being involved in pervy things.
