ControversiesAccused of Chucking
Shoaib Malik who alledegly copied the bowling action of Pakistan spinner Saqlain Mushtaq was reported for chucking in 2002 and 2004. Althought the improved International Cricket Council (ICC) rules permitted an elbow flex of up to 15 degrees, some biomechanical tests showed that his action was above the permissible limits. However, in November 2005, he was cleared of his suspected illegal bowling action. [3]CNN

Police Complaint by His First Wife
In 2010, Ayesha Siddiqui, Shoaib's first wife, filed a police complaint against him for cheating on her. Before Shoaib's marriage to Sania Mirza, Ayesha claimed that she was married to Shoaib and said that they both had a telephonic nikaah in 2002. Although, Shoaib initially denied that he was married to Ayesha, he later got divorced from Ayesha in April 2010, a few days beforehis marriage to Sania Mirza. Some sources claimed that Shoaib paid Rs. 15 crores to Ayesha as alimony. [4]The Siasaat Daily

Banned by Pakistan Cricket Board
Shoaib Malik was banned by the pakistan Cricket Board in March 2010 after the management team alleged that he misbehaved with the management during the 2009-2010 Australian tour. The Board also imposed a fine of Rs. 2 million (Pakistani) on him. Shoaib later appealed to the board against the ban and it was lifted in May 2010. The fine was also reduced to Rs. 1 million.
