Former primary school teacher Daryl Harper played grade cricket in Adelaide before taking up umpiring. He made his debut as a first class umpire in 1987. He was appointed to his first ODI in 1994, and his first Test match in 1998.
In 2002 he was appointed to the Elite Umpires Panel, being seen as a less controversial choice than fellow Australian umpire Darrell Hair.
