Cricket umpire training vital for raising standard


THE training of cricket umpires is important for the development of the code, as it raises the standard of play and conduct on the field.
As part of Cricket PNG’s efforts in promoting the game, equal importance was given to the umpires who have the most important role in the game.
Cricket PNG chief executive officer Greg Campbell said the game could not be sustained without qualified and experienced umpires.
“We can’t play the game without officials, simple as that. There are a lot of games out there that we struggle to find umpires for. Being an umpire is another avenue for people to get involved,” Campbell said
One of the country’s top umpires accredited by the International Cricket Council Lakani Oala supported Campbell’s comments.
“As the CEO said without umpires you cannot have games. We are always there.”
