Do you remember that few years ago FIFA suspended Bangladesh for political interference in
Football Federation? Now ICC may do the same if Bangladesh fails to stop political
interference in BCB within two years. In fact BCB have to do it before the annual general
meeting in June 2012. If they fail they will get additional one year.
Now board president of Bangladesh cricket is appointed by the Bangladesh government. Present
president Mustafa Kamal is a MP of ruling AL. He is also the president of parliamentary
committee for ministry of finance.
ICC’s annual general meeting held in Hong Kong also issued warning to Pakistan and Sri
Lankan cricket board. According to ICC’s new rule, cricket board must be an autonomous body,
they will need a constitution and election is needed to constitute the board. Bangladesh,
Pakistan and Sri Lankan cricket board will need most reform.
In Pakistan cricket board chief is appointed by the country’s president. He is also
designated chief patron of the board. In Sri Lanka cricket board is controlled by the sports
ministry and team is needed to be approved by the ministry.
This decision was passed unanimously, but in April Pakistan opposed the proposal.
