The 16 umpires and four match referees for the 45-match tournament include three umpires who will be officiating in their sixth men’s T20 World Cups — Aleem Dar, Erasmus and Rod Tucker.

Former India pacer Javagal Srinath is one of the four match referees named for the tournament, being played in Muscat (Oman), Abu Dhabi, Sharjah and Dubai (UAE) from October 17 to November 14.

The match officials for the semi-finals and final of the tournament in the UAE and Oman will be named in due course.

The ICC said a 20-strong group of match officials meant that for the first time since the pandemic, there will be neutral umpires for all matches of the tournament.
