St John’s (Antigua), March 3 : Cricket West Indies (CWI), on behalf of the International Cricket Council (ICC), on Wednesday announced an all-West Indian team of match officials for the upcoming series against visitors Sri Lanka.
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 junior 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 logistical challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, all match officials will be from the West Indies due to the ICC temporarily permitting appointment of locally-based match officials from the Emirates Elite Panel of Match Officials and the Emirates ICC International Panel of Match Officials.
