Bermuda-based Barbadian umpire Emmerson Carrington has been appointed to the International Panel of ICC Development Umpires, the Bermuda Cricket Board (BCB) has announced.
It is the second international appointment for Carrington, who was one of five umpires from Bermuda to be appointed to the ICC Americas Regional panel in January, along with Roger Dill, Steven Douglas, Oscar Andrade and fellow Barbadian Melvin Best.
BCB president Lloyd Smith said: “The International Panel of ICC Development Umpires is intended to offer a career path into the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires. Emmerson’s selection reflects his long-standing experience as both a local and international official.
“I am confident Emmerson will represent Bermuda well on this panel and hope that this appointment will open doors for more of our local umpires.”
Douglas, who is also president of the Bermuda Cricket Umpires Association, said: “On behalf of the executives and members we would like to congratulate Emmerson on being the second Bermuda umpire, behind Roger Dill, to be selected to this panel,” Douglas said.
“We wish him well in his future assignments.”
