Taufel, Hill umpires for Asia Cup final

June 27, 2008 16:27 IST

The International Cricket Council appointed Simon Taufel and Tony Hill as umpires for the Asia Cup final, to be held in Karachi, on July 6.

The six super-four games of the quadrennial event will be shared by Taufel and Ian Gould, and Tony Hill and Brian Jerling, while Alan Hurst will oversee all seven matches, an ICC [Images] statement said.

The ICC also announced a fresh panel of umpires and referees for the upcoming England-South Africa series, starting at Lord's on July 10.

Jeff Crowe has been appointed match referee for the first two Tests of the four-match series at Lord's and Leeds, while Daryl Harper and Billy Bowden will stand in as umpires.

Ranjan Madugalle will oversee the next two Tests at Birmingham and The Oval and Aleem Dar and Steve Davis, who is currently standing in the five-match ODI series between England [Images] and New Zealand [Images], will umpire the matches.

Madugalle will then hand over the charge to Roshan Mahanama for the August 20 Twenty20 International at Chester-le-Street and the ODI series that will be held after the Test series.

Simon Taufel will stand in the entire ODI series along with local appointments.
