The BCB is extremely pleased to announce that Mr. Steven Douglas has been selected to officiate at the ICC WCL Division 5 Tournament to be played in Singapore, February 18 - 25, 2012.


Six teams including Argentina, Bahrain, Cayman Islands, Guernsey, Malaysia and hosts Singapore will compete in this tournament and the top two will gain promotion to the ICC World Cricket League Division 4 to be held later in the year.


In a press release, the ICC explained that the match officials for the event include Tony Hill of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires. Hill will be part of a team of officials from a wide-range of countries who will be officiating in a week-long tournament which begins on 18 February. During his time with the match officials, Hill will also be acting as a mentor and helping to educate and guide the umpires throughout the tournament, as part of an ICC initiative for umpires development outside the Full Members.

Steven Douglas (Bermuda)
Rockie D'Mello (Kenya)

President of the BCB, Mr. Lloyd Fray stated, "I would like to congratulate Steven on his selection to officiate at the Division 5 Tournament. In May last year Steven umpired at the ICC WCL Division 7 Tournament in Botswana and his recent selection to the Division 5 tournament is a testament to his credibility at the international level. This is a great opportunity for Steven to work with other high level umpires to return to Bermuda to share his experiences with local officials."


The Bermuda Cricket Umpire's Associations stated, "The BCUA is delighted at Steven's appointment to stand in the ICC WCL Division 5 tournament in Singapore and this is one more step in the pathway of our umpires' career development.
