They are the decision-makers on the field. They stand behind the stumps and declare a player ‘Out’. And they are responsible for maintaining peace and gameplay according to the rules of cricket. Cricket umpires are a well-known symbol of justice for any team on the ground, without which, the match itself will be a misery.
The hotshot of the recent Pepsi IPL season Rochelle Rao conversed with two important personas of the league; the umpires, Richard Keith Illingworth and Vineet Anil Kulkarni. A sneak peek into their lives helped us know, why the cricket umpires are just like us. Find the list below.
1) They started playing cricket as kids
- Didn't most of us?
2. They give exams too!
- Oh! Those nights and early morning horrors.
3. They cherish friendships
- Yaari above all :D
4) They pull each other’s leg on the field
- Once a friend has played a prank on us, we ought to seek revenge, don't we?
5) They have a funny bone
- Those funny moments with your yaars which cannot be replaced for years to come.
6) They cherish memories!
- Because, who doesn't?
