The Umpires Committee of the Singapore Cricket Association have had their mid-season review and education program. ICC Associates & Affiliates Panel umpire Sarika Prasad took the attendees through the event, sharing the knowledge and experience gained from this year’s ICC U19 World Cup and ACC U-19 Asia Cup.

With 104 active umpires in the Panel (including 12 ACC Level II and 21 ACC Level I umpires) in Singapore the SCA Umpires Committee aims to provide continuous education and raise standards. With 105 registered teams playing in the Singapore Cricket Association League the need for umpires is paramount and up to the end of September, neutral umpires have stood in 618 league games, with more than 100 to go in the season.

“You can’t have proper cricket without proper umpiring and Singapore’s constant emphasis on domestic umpiring development is setting a benchmark for other ACC members to follow,” says ACC Development Officer for Singapore Aminul Islam.
