The 20 match officials for the League Round of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 in India have been revealed by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The 13th iteration of the competition will be officiated by sixteen officials, including all 12 of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires and four of the ICC Emerging Umpire Panel. They are:

Chris BrownKumar DharmasenaMarais ErasmusChris Gaffaney
Michael GoughAdrian HoldstockRichard IllingworthRichard Kettleborough
Nitin MenonAhsan RazaPaul ReiffelSharfuddoula Ibne Shaid

Only Aleem Dar is absent from the experienced list; he resigned from the Elite Panel in March of this year. The experienced list includes three of the four umpires who were appointed for the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 final at Lord’s: Dharmasena, Erasmus, and Tucker.

Four former international cricket players from the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees—Jeff Crowe, Andy Pycroft, Richie Richardson, and Javagal Srinath—are in attendance.

On October 5 in Ahmedabad, Srinath will oversee the tournament’s opening match between England and New Zealand, the last event’s finalists. The standing umpires will be Menon and Dharmasena, with Saikat serving as the fourth umpire and Paul Wilson serving as the TV umpire.

The selections for the tournament’s semifinals and championship game have already been made, but not yet for the League segment as a whole.

“To deliver an event of this magnitude you require high-performing individuals at every level,” said Wasim Khan, ICC General Manager – Cricket. “This World Cup will benefit greatly from the vast skills, experience, and top-notch standards that the ICC Elite panel of umpires, referees, and emerging group of umpires involved will bring. We are thrilled with the team we have put together for this competition.”

‘With the assistance of our Member Boards, the ICC Cricket Operations department takes great pride and care in running a rigorous and meritocratic selection process. High-quality match officials across the game continue to grow and emerge thanks to our competitive pathway system. We are happy that four ICC Emerging Umpire Panel members have earned the right to participate in this showcase event and we wish them, as well as all the other match officials involved, the best of luck in the competition.”

“We are pleased to announce the match officials who will be in charge of the biggest ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup ever,” said Sean Easey, ICC Manager – Umpires and Referees. With the attention of the entire cricketing world on the event, this team is the best in the world and will be prepared to perform a difficult task.

“We are confident in their ability to perform well and wish them luck in what looks to be a World Cup to remember.”
