Stephen Anthony Bucknor
May 31, 1946, Montego Bay, St James, Jamaica
The tall, quiet and considered umpire from Montego Bay, Jamaica takes his time with decisions and is one of the most widely respected umpires in the cricket world. He gives a nod and apologetic smile before raising his finger and sending batsmen on their way.
He took to cricket umpiring following repeatedly incorrect decisions while playing cricket in Jamaica.
He was the first to umpire 100 Test matches, having made his umpiring debut in both forms of international cricket during India's tour of the Caribbean in March-May 1989. He has umpired in more Test matches than any other umpire and has umpired in the last three World Cup finals.
