Australian Simon Taufel, a winner of five consecutive ICC Umpire of the Year awards, and England's Ian Gould were on Sunday appointed as the on-field officials for the high-voltage India-Pakistan World Cup semi-final here on Wednesday.

Sri Lanka's Ranjan Madugalle has been named the match referee with New Zealand's Billy Bowden and Australian Rod Tucker being the third and fourth umpires respectively.

For the first semi-final between Sri Lanka and New Zealand in Colombo, Steve Davis and Aleem Dar will oversee the on-field proceedings with Chris Broad acting as match referee, the ICC said in a statement.

Marais Erasmus (third umpire), Billy Doctrove (fourth umpire) are the other two officials for the Sri Lanka-New Zealand clash.
