AS the Cricket West Indies (CWI) gets ready to bowl off its 2021-2022 home season, it has announced the list of top regional umpires who were retained for the period.

Among those making the cut is Nevisian Carl Tuckett, who was among 13 umpires retained by CWI.In announcing the retention of the 13 umpires, CWI explained that the retainer contracts were for the existing Senior Panel of Umpires for the new contract period April 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022.

“The significant reduction in regional cricket in the last contracting period, due to the impact of COVID-19, has resulted in no changes being made to the list of umpires to be offered contracts. CWI invests annually in the panel of umpires due to their fundamental role in ensuring that the spirit and integrity of cricket is preserved, and that the highest possible quality fair play is upheld on the field,” CWI said.
