Welcome

What this site is about

To be a good Cricket umpire you have to be a good

person

You need good people skills and to have good life values. You need to be honest, a person of integrity. You need a thorough knowledge of the laws of cricket, to be mentally tough when the pressure increases and conflict occurs. You need to be able to relate to players of different cultures, personalities and backgrounds. At times you have to be firm with players, but there are times when you can relax and share a laugh and a joke. You need good eyesight and hearing, powers of concentation and sufficient physical fitness to be able to make accurate decisions whether it be the first or the hundredth over of the day. This website aims to give cricket umpires (and players) tools and tips to better understand the role of the cricket umpire and the varied situations that can occur during a day’s play.

I think I got that

decision wrong!

“When you do make a

mistake, you have to look

and see: what can I learn

from that, how does it fit

into my trends analysis, what

can I do differently next time

I am presented with the same

sort of circumstances" ?
