AHM Mostafa Kamal has been appointed president of the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB), replacing Sina Ibn Jamali, a board statement said on Wednesday. Kamal, who is a member of parliament and a senior figure in the ruling Awami League, assumed office on Wednesday.

Jamali, was appointed by an army-backed interim government in August 2007, which was replaced by the Awami League government last December. While the Bangladesh government appoints the BCB president, the other 24 directors are elected by board members.
