During a recent board meeting in Dubai, the International Cricket Council (ICC) took several significant decisions.
The Chief Executives Committee (CEC) was updated on the usage of home umpires from July 2020 to February 2022 due to COVID, according to details.
The Committee acknowledged that home umpires had performed admirably and had had no effect on games. Because of the usage of home umpires, 12 members of the International Panel made their Test match debuts.
The CEC agreed, in keeping with a recent suggestion by the ICC Men’s Cricket Committee, that when travel limitations are eased, more neutral match officials should be used, building on the success of the employment of local umpires.
