Mustafa Kamal resigns as ICC president

Mustafa Kamal, president of the International Cricket Council (ICC), has resigned from his position with a complaint of being denied at the trophy presentation ceremony after Sunday’s World Cup final at the Melbourne Cricket Ground.
As the head of the governing body, it was his right to handover the trophy to the victorious Australian side, but it was given by ICC chairman Narayanaswami Srinivasan.
It is thought that Mustafa Kamal had to pay the price for his protest against a controversial umpiring decision given in the second quarter-finals match between Bangladesh and India.
Kamal’s departure has been confirmed by the governing body. According to them, he resigned on personal reason and he had no complaints to make against anyone.

The vacant position of president will be filled up after ICC’s board meeting in Dubai on April 15 and 16.
