Nagpur:Mark Benson, the ICC Elite Panel umpire nominated to officiate in the second One-Day International between Australia and India here on Wednesday, has a stomach bug and would not be standing in the match.
"Benson has fallen sick with a stomach bug and has been admitted to a local hospital where various tests are being done. His place has been taken over by Sudhir Asnani," Vidarbha Cricket Association sources said.
Asnani and Amish Saheba, also from India, would be the on-field umpires.
Shavir Tarapore, who officiated in the opening match of the series at Vadodara with Saheba, a stand-in for a sick Benson, would be the third umpire.
