Bangladesh's Mustafa Kamal quits as ICC president

April 01, 2015 03:00 PM

Bangladesh's Mustafa Kamal said on Wednesday he is resigning from the post of president of the International Cricket Council (ICC) over who should have given away the World Cup trophy to the fifth-time winners Australia on Sunday.

At a press conference, Kamal said he was resigning to protest the "flagrant violation" of the ICC constitution, and his decision was "final" and "not negotiable", reports

Kamal's resignation in a huff follows a massive spat between him and ICC chairman N. Srinivasan, who broke the ICC practice and himself presented the glittering World Cup to winners Australia at the prize-giving ceremony after the final at Melbourne last Sunday.
