LONDON: Aleem Dar is likely to supervise the ICC World Cup final at Lord’s on July 14.
Pakistani umpire, who is one of the eminent umpires on the International Cricket Council (ICC) panel, wasn’t picked to supervise the two semi-finals as an on field umpire. However, he has been assigned as the fourth umpire for the second semi-final featuring hosts England and Australia.
It is likely that Dar would be appointed to officiate at Sunday’s final at Lord’s.
Meanwhile, the ICC on Sunday appointed umpires and officials for the two World Cup semi-finals following the conclusion of the group stage.
Taking charge of the India versus New Zealand match on Tuesday, at Old Trafford will be English umpires Richard Illingworth and Richard Kettleborough, while Australian Rod Tucker will be in the third umpire’s chair and Englishman Nigel Llong will be the fourth official. Former Australia international David Boon will be the match referee.
