LONDON, MARCH 26. The International Cricket Council (ICC) appointed its first Umpires and Referees manager to support the newly-formed 13-strong elite international panel of match officials.
An ICC statement on Monday said Chris Kelly, a 44-year-old teacher and English county cricket umpire, will `manage, mentor and coach' the five match referees and eight umpires appointed as part of the sport's attempt to improve standards.
``I am delighted to welcome Chris to our team at the ICC,'' said ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed. ``I have every confidence that he will prove to be an invaluable asset to our match officials as international cricket embarks on a new era of full-time professional umpires and referees.''
