Will Kamal open ‘Pandora’s Box’

  • Published at 12:38 pm March 30th, 2015

The snub of ICC president Mustafa Kamal in the cricket World Cup 2015 final prize distribution ceremony stirred the cricket arena across the world and whether the matter will be laid to rest or not will depend on the scheduled presser after his arrival at the capital at 12:30pm tomorrow.

British national daily newspaper The Guardian quoted Mustafa Kamal as he threatened to reveal the “Mischievous Things”. “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,”  The Guardian quoted Kamal.

The ICC chairman, Narayanaswami Srinivasan, presented the World Cup to Australia, rather than Kamal who made it clear in interviews with the Bangladeshi media that he remains far from happy about the recent events. He said he has been robbed off his constitutional rights. Kamal was drawing power from the amendment 3.3 of January 2015. The amendment approved in a full council was as follows – 3.3 (B): “With effect from the 2014 Conference Close Date, the President shall act solely as chairman at Conference and Special Meetings and be responsible for presenting trophies at global competitions and cricket events held under the aegis of the Council. For the avoidance of doubt, with effect from the 2014 Conference Close Date, the President will no longer act as chairman of the Executive Board or as chairman of any Committee or Sub-Committee.”

Kamal also told Anandabazar, a renowned Kolkata newspaper, that he would not bow down. “You tell me if I had said anything illogical, I have some accountability to the people of my country, they will ask me about the happenings as I am the president, I have to say something somewhere, if ICC would have called me then I would have told them but they snubbed me,” Anandabazar quoted the Bangladeshi.

Reportedly, Kamal was “insulted” during an ICC meeting and questions were also raised over his ability as the ICC president. Kamal, also Bangladesh’s minister for planning, made statements over the umpiring of Bangladesh-India quarterfinal questioning ICC as its CEO Dave Richardson immediately criticised Kamal’s act.
