Five umpires from the back-up group of ICC International Panel have been rewarded with quarter-final jobs including third-umpire officiating for Richard Kettleborough and Kumar Dharmasena. Asad Rauf was the only man who was not assigned an on-field or TV responsibility, but he will be the reserve umpire for the Australia and India fixture.
Asoka de Silva had a poor tournament and criticized for the wrong decisions when he gave Ireland's Gary Wilson LBW against West Indies. The decision was challenged by Wilson and replays clear illustrated the ball struck his pad outside off stump while he was playing a shot, but de Silva did not upend his decision.
De Silva was consequently detached from tasks in the key matches between England-West Indies and India-West Indies games and instead he was assigned roles in matches involving the Associates.
