</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>AHM Mustafa Kamal's elevation from the position of Bangladesh Cricket Board chief to the ICC vice-presidency (http://www.espncricinfo.com/ci-icc/content/story/586186.html) is an unprecedented rise for a Bangladesh sports administrator. It also means his time as the head of the country's cricket is up. During Kamal's three-year tenure as BCB chief, the senior team won series and matches against top teams and the country co-hosted the 2011 World Cup. Kamal can also take credit for the creation of the Bangladesh Premier League, being one of the few board chiefs in the country trying to take a step towards the decentralisation of the game, and helping the board's coffers multiply four times than what they were worth t the time he took over.
