Cricket News sort by Simon Taufel

The retirement of an umpire doesn’t often generate as much hype in comparison to when a player hangs up his boots. And like most other former officials, Australia’s Simon Taufel will also walk away quietly following the World T20 final between Sri Lanka and West Indies.

Umpire Simon Taufel is all set to retire from Umpiring after tomorrow’s ICC World T20 Final between Sri Lanka and West Indies.

West Indian umpire Billy Doctrove has announced his retirement from international cricket after a career spanning 14 years. A member of ICC’s Elite Panel of umpires, Doctrove was among the more respected umpires in international cricket, which is the reason why he stood in 38 Tests, 112 ODIs and 17 T20 internationals, including the final of the ICC World Twenty20 between England and Australia in Barbados in 2010.
