Cricket/Umpiring as a Profession
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 ?
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.
