Umpiring and scoring are essential parts of every cricket game, and a great way to become involved. Umpiring ensures all cricket matches are fair, orderly and enjoyable for everyone. Umpires enjoy the challenge of cricket - plus the satisfaction of helping others enjoy their game.
Scorers can now provide live online progress so everyone can keep up with games.
We need many more active umpires and scorers to manage every cricket game.
Here's a start on how to get involved as an umpire or scorer, and who to contact within your area to find out more.
