International Cricket Council (ICC) president Mustafa Kamal has decided to call it quits after courting plenty of controversy. He has also said that the decision is final and non-negotiable. He has also vowed to expose the happenings in the ICC after getting back to Bangladesh.

“The main reason for my resignation is that I can’t work with those who can act unconstitutionally and unlawfully,” he told reporters in Dhaka. In the days of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015, Kamal was involved in plenty of controversy. After the India-Bangladesh semi-final tie, which India sealed comfortably, Kamal questioned the integrity of umpires over a poor decision which ruled Rohit Sharma not-out by calling the delivery a no-ball.

Kamal was later shunned from the World Cup prize distribution ceremony where N Srinivasan — the ICC chairman — was called on instead to present the winning team the trophy. Kamal was reportedly miffed about this.

“I was supposed to give the trophy, it is my constitutional right. But very unfortunately, I wasn’t allowed to do so. My rights were dishonoured. 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,” Kamal was quoted as saying by ESPNcricinfo.
