good to hear youngster like u is intrested to become a umpire which is most thankless job on the feild.
well first i would like to make u clear that in India you cannot be a Professional cricket umpire until you reach a level like standing in ICC games...then only u can think f becoming professional like simon or any other, so first concentrate on the settling your career and then continue your passion towards achieving your goal to become an umpire.
To become a L-1 umpire the exam will be conducted somewhere around march but be in touch with your local state Assn. as they will have the correct dates informed to them by bcci when they conduct the exam, also find out a bcci umpire from your place where you r resideing so, that he can guide you through the process
