Cricket/About Cricket Umpiring


Dear Sir
         I am Pankaj Pratap Joshi 29  from Maharashtra.  I want to know everything about  "How to become a cricket umpire ? "
Sir i have a lot of passion about cricket . Main quality is my Patience &  Knowledge about the game & its rules.
pls guide me to fulfil my dream for that i'm ready to do any type of hardwork.

Sorry I do not know the exact organisation in your country.

Almost certainly you need to join your local cricket club - most of them are glad of an umpire for some of their matches.

They should then be able to introduce you to the local umpires' club or organisation, who should be holding training classes, usually during the close season.

Failing that contact the Board of Control for your country or region.
