In his resignation letter to the ICC Chief Executive David Richardson, Kamal said he was stepping down on personal grounds and offered his apologies to all associated with the ICC, adding that he had no complaints to make against anyone.

“Let the game of cricket under the leadership of ICC touch the hearts and minds of every cricket lover,” he wrote in his letter.

The ICC Board will now consider the vacant position of the ICC President at its forthcoming meeting in Dubai on 15 and 16 April.

Kamal was vocal against poor umpiring standards in Bangladesh’s defeat at the hands of India in World Cup quarter-finals and felt that Bangladesh were forced out of the competition. 

In addition, Kamal also felt distraught for not being allowed to hand over the World Cup trophy to worthy champions Australia.

Instead it was ICC Chairman N Srinavasan who handed over the trophy while Kamal claimed that it was his right according to the ICC constitution.
