Pakistani umpires among T20 World Cup 2022 match officials

Pakistan’s Ahsan Raza and Aleem Dar are among the match officials named for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022. The two are part of ICC Elite Panel Umpires and ICC International Panel Umpires, respectively.

They will officiate the matches in the Group stage as well as in the Qualifying round. The ICC has named four match referees and 16 umpires, which makes the total of 20 Match Officials for the ICC T20 World Cup 2022.

The experienced list of match officials composes the same 16, named for last year’s T20 World Cup 2021, which took place in the UAE and Oman. So far, officials to officiate the respective matches have been finalized for the first round and the Super 12, whereas the selections for the semi-finals and finals will be announced soon.

“Chief Referee of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, Ranjan Madugalle, is part of a quartet of former international cricketers who make up the match referees for the eighth edition of the T20 World Cup. Sri Lankan Madugalle is joined by Andrew Pycroft of Zimbabwe, England’s Christopher Broad and Australian David Boon. 

Pycroft will take charge of the tournament opener in Geelong on 16 October when Sri Lanka takes on Namibia in the First round, with Joel Wilson and Rodney Tucker the umpires in the middle. Paul Reiffel will act as the TV umpire with Erasmus, occupying the role of the fourth umpire.

Erasmus, Tucker and Aleem Dar are all set to appear in their seventh ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, with Langton Rusere umpiring in his second World Cup of the year, having stood in the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup 2022, including acting as reserve umpire for the final.

Rusere will be the TV umpire in place when Australia and New Zealand kick off the Super 12 round on 22 October in Sydney. The match is a replay of the 2021 final, and Rusere will be joined by Adrian Holdstock and Dharmasena (on-field) and Richard Illingworth (fourth umpire).”
