30 of the region’s most promising umpires have been through the latest ACC Level II Umpiring Program, held last month in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Conducted by ACC Umpiring Resource Personnel Borni Jamula, Peter Manuel and Mahboob Shah, the five-day program was attended by participants from 10 countries.

Many of the umpires have officiated in ACC events already, with several being national players as well as ACC certified coaches. “There was no doubt that the standard of umpires was high, I would only emphasise to them that they must stand in as many matches as possible as nothing beats on the ground learning when you are an umpire,” said ACC Development Manager Bandula Warnapura. The umpires will be graded and the best candidates are in line to stand at higher levels of ACC and ICC regional events.
