National cricket captain Mohammad Ashraful the humanitarian efforts of Islamic Relief as its ambassador. Islamic Relief, well known throughout the world for its humanitarian activities during natural disaster and conflicts. In the 2007 cyclone Sidr the organisation provided humanitarian assistance to more than a million affected people.
Islamic Relief is an international development organisation founded in 1984 in the UK and it provides opportunities to the extreme poor population by initiating income generating activities and skill development training

Just thought that I should mention this here.
I really dont know what his role will be and how busy he is playing cricket.
IR is run by primarily Pakistanis. They are a NGO working in the field of Relief. They are in no way involved in any sort of religious activities.

Good to know that, but it really does not mean that he is becoming religious. They will primarily try to raise fund through their goodwill ambasadors.

So don't get confused.
