ICC President says “ICC has become Indian Cricket Council, will resign if needed” 

Bangladesh has decided to appeal to the ICC against the controversial umpire decisions in their crucial clash against India in the 2015 World Cup. The Indian cricket team have managed to progress to the semi-finals of ICC World Cup 2015 with a thumping 109-run victory against Bangladesh earlier today.

Bangladesh Planning Minister AHM Mustafa Kamal and current International Cricket Council (ICC) president said on Thursday that ICC was not International Cricket Council anymore. He says “It has become Indian Cricket Council.”

He also added, “If needed, I will resign from the ICC. One can be part of the ICC but not the Indian Cricket Council.”

During their biggest game this World Cup, the Tigers were dismantled by an inspired Indian team that has now won all the games in the World Cup. Earlier when India batted first, centurion Rohit Sharma was caught at deep square leg in his 90s, but leg-umpire Aleem Dar ruled it out by giving it as waist-high no-ball.

Replays suggested that the ball was under Sharma’s waist when the batsman hit the ball and Rohit went on to make a well made 137 while India registered a massive 302 on an MCG pitch.

During the second innings, Bangladesh got another blow as their in-form batsman Mahmudullah, who scored 2 centuries already in this world cup, was caught in the deep by Shikhar Dhawan. Umpires were not sure whether Dhawan took the catch cleanly, so they went for a third umpire replay.

The third umpire, Steve Davis, made the call that it was infact out and Mahmudullah had to go back to the pavilion. Bangladesh say they want justice for the actions of the umpire as per the reports coming from their local sources.

Now whether or not any action will be taken is up for debate and undecided but this might very well ruffle a few feathers in the ICC, as well as the Cricketing world.
