Bangladesh appoint new cricket chief
DHAKA: A.H.M. Mostafa Kamal has been appointed president of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), replacing Sina Ibn Jamali, a board statement said on Wednesday.
Kamal is a member of parliament and a senior figure in the ruling Awami League of Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina, who won election in December 2008.
Jamali was appointed by an army-backed interim government in August 2007.
Bangladesh’s government is largely mandated to appoint the BCB president though the other 24 directors are elected by board members. — Reuters
