    ICC Umpire and Referee appointments for World Cup Semi Finals

    Greetings guys...

    Found this on the ICC site this morning. While I personally think it is wonderful that Simon Taufel got the gig, does anyone have any ideas why Daryl Harper is there instead of Daryl Hair?? I personally think Hair had a better tournament!!

    ICC Umpire and Referee appointments for World Cup Semi Finals
    ICC Media Release - 15 March 2003
    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------


    The ICC today confirmed the umpiring and match refereeing appointments for the semi finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2003.

    Officials for the matches in Port Elizabeth and Durban will be:

    Australia v Sri Lanka, Port Elizabeth, Tuesday 18 March
    Standing umpires: David Shepherd, England and Rudi Koertzen, South Africa
    Third umpire: Billy Bowden, New Zealand
    Fourth umpire: Aleem Dar, Pakistan
    Match referee: Clive Lloyd, West Indies

    India v Kenya, Durban, Thursday, 20 March
    Standing umpires: Steve Bucknor, West Indies and Daryl Harper, Australia
    Third umpire: Simon Taufel, Australia
    Fourth umpire: Asoka de Silva, Sri Lanka
    Match referee: Mike Procter, South Africa

    David Richardson, ICC General Manager-Cricket said: "These appointments reflect the consistently high standards of decision making and match management achieved over the course of the tournament. All officials have been assessed on a match-by-match basis, and the eight umpires selected for the finals are the men who have performed best in the opinion of the captains, match referees and the ICC."

    Officials for the ICC Cricket World Cup final at The Wanderers on Sunday 23 March will be announced after the second semi final. This will allow appointments to be made which are independent of both competing teams.

    Poor Billy. I hope there's enough room in the third umpire's 'hut' for BB to dance around.

    No Venkat?!?

    Perhaps he is being rested for the final..........

    Hopefully anyway. I think Venkat and Bucknor should do the final.

    I'm just practicing my ball-by-ball commentary.

    Good morning from Port Elizabeth. Chaminda Vaas to Adam Gilchrist - a single, nudged down to third man. Only another 110 to go before we can get up on one leg.

    I would be laughing a great deal if Venkat were to do the final, since it would mean we'd be seeing Kenya there!

    Venkat's Indian.

    You can't umpire your own Nation (Neutrality)

    If Venkat umpires the final, India lost the Semi.

    If India lost the Semi, Kenya are in the Final.

    oooooh! I didn't know that, I knew he was Indian, but I thought that at this level of cricket and umpiring, neutrality shouldn't be a problem... :P

    ok, then, Bucknor and somebody else for the finals!

    Simon has become my fav. Ump too. Noticed him in the Morocco series where Sanjay Manjraker always used to say in his every stint as a commentator when Simon was umpiring that he was very young and that he is very very good as an umpire. He seems to have carried that into the WC also.I have heard him commentating about Simon when he was Umpiring.

    Krkode , Venkat must not have been picked b'coz he made some bad decisions in this WC.

    I know him personally as he is one of my Umpiring Mentors....

    He is the type of Ump I hope to become one day and I know most of the players down here hold him in very high regard
