Faisal Khan Afridi, the former first class cricketer, has been promoted to the ICC’s International Panel of Umpires, according to a statement issued by Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB).

PCB informed that the decision to include Faisal in the panel was taken after an internal assessment, review and appraisal process. Faisal Khan has replaced Shozab Raza. Raza will now continue to serve on the PCB Elite Panel of Umpires.

The statement further said that Afridi has now joined Ahsan Raza, Asif Yaqoob, Rashid Riaz and Shozab Raza on the international panel following impressive decision making and displaying good man-management skills in domestic matches.

 

The 43-year-old umpire has played a total of 53 first class matches from 1998-99 to 2007-08 and has to date officiated in the three women’s ODIs, three women’s T20Is, 17 first class matches, 13 List A matches and 23 T20 matches.

On the other hand, only one Pakistani umpire – Aleem Dar – is included in the ICC Elite Panel of Umpires.

Currently, Aleem Dar and Ahsan Raza are officiating the matches of the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2021. Both Pakistani umpires were earlier nominated by ICC among 16 umpires and four match referees for the Round 1 and Super 12 stages of the world tournament.

The ongoing tournament is the sixth world cup that Aleem is officiating.
