Dubai:India's Shavir Tarapore is among the three umpires who have been added to the umpires' panel for the upcoming ICC World Twenty20, to be held the West Indies from April 30 to May 16.
Marais Erasmus and Rod Tucker are the other two umpires included in the list on Thursday.
"The three, who are part of the Emirates International Panel of ICC Umpires, will join their colleagues from the Emirates Elite Panel for the tournament," an ICC release said.
Ranjan Madugalle, Alan Hurst and Jeff Crowe (all from the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees) will be the match referees for the event.
"It will be noted that Daryl Harper, also of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, has not been selected for this event. This decision was taken by the selection panel for a number of general performance reasons.
It must be categorically stated, however, that none of these reasons is related to his role as third umpire in the fourth Test between South Africa and England in Johannesburg earlier this year," the release added.
The selection panel consists of David Richardson (ICC General Manager), Ranjan Madugalle (ICC Chief Match Referee), David Lloyd (former player, coach, umpire and now television commentator) and Srinivas Venkataraghavan (former elite panel umpire).
