ICC president Mustafa Kamal resigns; vows to expose the international cricket body

Mustafa Kamal has resigned from his post as the ICC president amidst differences with other board members, especially ICC chairman N. Srinivasan, over the last few days.

Kamal and Srinivasan supposedly were at loggerheads on who should hand over the ICC Cricket World Cup trophy to the winners on Sunday and in the end, it was the former BCCI president who did the honours. The Bangladeshi politician, insulted after the snub, did not even attend the post-match presentation.

The 67-year-old has promised to reveal some ‘mischievous things’ that are taking place within the ICC.

“My rights were dishonoured. After I go back home, I will let the whole world know what’s happening in ICC. I will let the whole world know about those guys who are doing these mischievous things,” he said.

Kamal had recently made the news after Bangladesh’s defeat at the hands of India during the ICC Cricket World Cup. He had alleged that umpiring errors that were made in the match were a deliberate attempt to eliminate the Mashrafe Mortaza-led side from the tournament.

Speaking about the decisions that went against his country back then, he had said: “It could be deliberate. Though I can’t say it absolutely but it looks like that. I know in cricket, human errors are quite possible, but how can a dozen decisions go against Bangladesh? It was very, very poor umpiring.

“I was there in the ground and I saw whatever happened. What happened was just not on, so many mistakes cannot take place in a single match. It naturally created a furore among the fans.”
