ACC Umpiring Resource Person and ICC Regional Umpires Performance Manager Peter Manuel is in Oman to groom the next batch of umpires in the country. The six-day course has 24 participants, one of whom is a lady. They are all graduates of the Level 0 course held in Oman last July.

The course is being run in the evenings and Peter Manuel is being assisted by Oman’s AR Srinivasan who has stood in a number of ACC tournaments. ACC Development Officer for Oman Iqbal Sikander is pleased with Oman’s groundswell of progress, “what they have in the way of activity, considering there are so few facilities, is quite remarkable and it’s going to be very useful to have these new umpires who are known to be qualified, umpiring in all the new fixtures next season.”
