Srinath omitted from ICC panel of referees for Super Eights

March 27, 2007 16:18 IST

Former Indian spearhead Javagal Srinath was on Tuesday left out of the four-man ICC panel of match referees which will officiate in the Super Eight stage of the ongoing cricket World Cup.

Srinath refereed preliminary stage matches but was not included for the Super Eight stage. The ICC also announced the names of nine umpires who would be standing in the next stage.

Brent Bowden was the only one to be left out from the umpires' group which stood in the first round matches.

The first match in the Super Eight stage takes place today between hosts the West Indies and defending champions Australia in Antigua.

The semi-finals will be held in Jamaica on April 24 and St Lucia on April 25 with the final taking place in Barbados on April 28. Appointments for those last three matches will be made in due course.

Umpires: Mark Benson, Billy Bowden, Steve Bucknor, Aleem Dar, Billy Doctrove, Daryl Harper, Rudi Koertzen, Asad Rauf and Simon Taufel.

Match Referees: Chris Broad, Jeff Crowe, Ranjan Madugalle and Mike Procter.
