Let us tell you, during the 2021 edition of the tournament, Australia won the T20 World Cup for the first time by beating their neighbour New Zealand by a huge margin of 8 wickets. This time too they will go with the intention of winning it, especially with having the home advantage.

Nitin Menon, the lone Indian umpire in the ICC Elite Panel, has already reached Australia. All these umpires are very experienced as most of the umpires officiated in the same tournament last year as well.

Zimbabwe’s Andrew Pycroft will be seen as a match referee in the first round match between Sri Lanka and Namibia in Geelong on 16th October. Joel Wilson and Rodney Tucker will also accompany him, while Paul Reiffel will serve as the TV umpire with Erasmus serving as the fourth umpire.
