ICC announces umpire and match referee appointments for ICC Champions Trophy.

The ICC today announced details of the umpire and match referee appointments for the group stage of the upcoming ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa, which will take place from 22 September to 5 October.

The match referees' responsibilities throughout the tournament will be shared between Jeff Crowe, Javagal Srinath and Roshan Mahanama of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees.

The on-field responsibilities will be shared by eight of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, namely: Billy Bowden, Aleem Dar, Steve Davis, Ian Gould, Daryl Harper, Tony Hill, Asad Rauf and Simon Taufel.

Meanwhile, appointments have also been made for the warm-up matches to be played at Potchefstroom, Pretoria and Benoni on 18 and 20 September. As at previous ICC events, none of these matches will carry official ODI status. Two umpires from the Emirates International Panel of ICC Umpires, Marais Erasmus and Brian Jerling, will act as third umpires for some of the warm-up matches.

Appointments for the semi-finals and the final will be announced in due course.
