Marais Erasmus earns successive David Shepherd Trophies

2017 ICC Awards

The South African retained the David Shepherd Trophy for ICC Umpire of the Year.

Marais Erasmus has been named ICC Umpire of the Year for the second year running.

Popular with players and renowned as one of the most reliable decision makers on the international circuit, the South African first lifted the trophy in 2016, ending Richard Kettleborough’s three-year winning streak, and maintained his excellent standards last year to scoop the award once again.
