The ICC has announced 20 match officials for the first round and Super 12s phase of the tournament.
“A total of 16 umpires will lead the tournament with Richard KettleboroughNitin Menon, Kumara Dharmasena and Marais Erasmus because they were the umpires in charge of the 2021 final, where this year’s hosts claimed their first ICC Men’s T20 World Cup title,” the ICC said in a statement.
“It’s an experienced group of umpires, with the same 16 selected as last year’s tournament held in the United Arab Emirates and Oman.”
Ranjan Madugalle, Chief Referee of the ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees, is part of a quartet of former international cricketers who will form the match referees for the eighth edition of the T20 World Cup.
