ICC in association with SLC and Ten Sports is set to conduct the first ever simulated television umpire technology training course on August 30.
The course will be run by Australian umpire and member of the Emirates ICC Elite Umpires panel Simon Taufel and will involve training on various aspects of the game, including the much-debated Decision Review System (DRS), an ICC media release stated.
“This is a great initiative which will benefit the elite panel umpires and also the international panel umpires from Sri Lanka,” Taufel, winner of five ICC Umpire of the Year awards, said.
“The decision-making module will involve training on run out, stumping, clean catches, bump ball, lbw (DRS), caught (DRS), boundaries and front-foot no-balls. While working through the various decision-making elements, there will also be a focus on effective communication skills,” he added.
