  • ICC president rails at World Cup trophy snub

    ICC president AHM Mustafa Kamal has said that the game's governing body denied him of his right to give the trophy at the post-match presentation ceremony of the World Cup final on Sunday.   The trophy was handed over by ICC chairman N Srinivasan, despite the ICC's amendment of its rules in January 2015 to mandate that ICC president is supposed to give trophies at global competitions.   Kamal spoke to two Bangladeshi TV channels - Jamuna TV and 71 - following Sunday's final, accusing the ICC of not honouring his rights. After I go back home, I will let the whole world know what's happening in ICC. Kamal had come close to questioning the integrity of the umpires by saying that the ICC should investigate the matter and questioned whether some decisions were "deliberate or not." A day later, the ICC's chief executive, Dave Richardson, termed Kamal's criticism "unfortunate".
