ICC BANGLADESHI PRESIDENT MUSTAFA KAMAL THREATENED TO RESIGN OVER THE UMPIRE DECISION
ICC President Mustafa Kamal has threatened to quit his post over the foul play in the World Cup second quarterfinal between India and Bangladesh. He claims that the defending champions are involved in a controversial no-ball decision, which gave a life-line to centurion Rohit Sharma.
Sharma was caught at deep mid-wicket off the bowling of Rubel Hossain when he was on 90, only for the umpires Aleem Dar and Ian Gould to signal a no-ball for what appeared to be a legitimate waist-high delivery.
Mustafa Kamal said in comments aired on Bangladeshi television, “As the ICC president, whatever I have to say I will say it in next meeting. It could happen that maybe I will resign.”
“There was no quality in the umpiring. It looked like they took the field after it (the outcome) was pre-arranged,” he alleged.
He also added, “I cannot represent the Indian Cricket Council. If someone has imposed a result on us, in that case no one can accept it .”
