Question
QUESTION: Dear Sir,

This is Hemang Shah. It has been amazing reading your responses to the questions raised by people.

I want to take Umpiring as a Profession. Can you help me in this. I am an engineer. What is the future scope ?

Is there any study material available to enable me to prepare for the same ?

Please help.

Thanks.

ANSWER: hi hemang...

thank u, well as you are interested in taking it as profession i would like to tell you that in India umpiring is semi-profession, so first we should concentrate on our basic work and then on umpiring once you reach bcci-ranji level then you can opt it as profession.

i your case try to get in touch with local assn. or mah.cricket assn. in pune where they run courses for umpires and they will help you in achieving your goal.

regards
