ALL-WEST INDIAN MATCH OFFICIAL TEAM ANNOUNCED FOR UPCOMING SRI LANKA SERIES

By CWI

ST JOHN’S, Antigua — Cricket West Indies (CWI), on behalf of the International Cricket Council (ICC), today announced the match officials for the upcoming series against Sri Lanka who will all be from the West Indies. The two teams will play all three formats, starting with the CG Insurance T20 Internationals which begins on Wednesday night at the Coolidge Cricket Ground (CCG).

Former West Indies Test captain Sir Richie Richardson will be the ICC Match Referee for all matches to be played at CCG and the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium (SVRS) in Antigua. The team of match officials will comprise Joel Wilson, a member of the Emirates ICC Elite Panel of Umpires, as well as Gregory Brathwaite, Nigel Duguid, Leslie Reifer jr and Patrick Gustard, who are all members of the Emirates ICC International Panel of Umpires.

The Test series will have special significance for Wilson and Brathwaite. Wilson will stand in his first Test match in the Caribbean. He has so far officiated in 19 Tests, 66 ODIs and 26 T20Is. Brathwaite will stand in his first Test match. He has so far officiated in 44 ODIs and 28 T20Is.

Due to the logistics challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, all match officials will be from the West Indies due to the ICC temporarily permitting the appointment of locally-based match officials from the Emirates Elite Panel of Match Officials and the Emirates ICC International Panel of Match Officials.

Roland Holder, CWI’s Senior Manager of Cricket Operations said:

“We have worked over the years to improve the standard of cricket in all areas. It is a just reward for the match officials to be recognised for their hard work by being a part of an all-West Indian match officials team. Everyone at CWI is really happy that they have the opportunity to showcase their skills and we wish them all the very best during the series.”
