Officials for the 2011 Cricket World Cup were selected by the Umpire selection panel and the information was released on 12 December, 2010. Umpire selection panel selected 18 umpires and a reserve umpire, Enamul Haque to officiate at the World Cup: 5 were from Australia, 6 from Asia, 3 from England, 2 from New Zealand and 1 each from South Africa and West Indies. It also selected 5 match referees for the event.[1]

The umpire selection panel consisted of David Richardson (ICC General Manager - Cricket), Ranjan Madugalle (ICC Chief Match Referee), David Lloyd (former player, coach, umpire and now television commentator) and Srinivas Venkataraghavan (former elite panel umpire).[2]


Out of the selected umpires, 12 of them belong to the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires while the rest 6 belong to the International Panel of Umpires and Referees. In addition, a reserve umpire Enamul Haque has been selected from Bangladesh who will officiate in the warm up matches and if required, during the event.

The members of the Elite Panel of ICC umpires are generally thought to be the best umpires in the world and hence offiate in almost all major cricket tournaments and ICC Events. The rest six of the International Panel of Umpires have been identified as emerging and talented match officials, who have already officiated at international level with experience of conditions in the Asian sub-continent and are now ready to umpire in the World Cup.[3]
