3.3 Partnering skills

You must successfully demonstrate:
Support for the PCT: Support the 4th Umpire
ICC expects umpires to plan together as part of their pre-match preparation. This preparation includes:

Planning with the 4th Umpire to ensure everything is in place prior to, and on, match-day

Support for the PCT: Support the TV Umpire
ICC expects umpires to plan together as part of their pre-match preparation. This preparation includes:

Planning with the TV Umpire to ensure everything is in place prior to, and on, match-day. ICC requires umpires to work very closely with the TV Umpire to ensure the right decision is made (in those scenarios involving the TV Umpire), fielding infringements, accurate recording of over rates, accurate ball count, and player absence from the field recorded accurately (and followed up by the 4th Umpire where necessary e.g. precise nature of injury and approximate time of return).

The TV Umpire cannot work effectively unless he is fully informed by, and supported by, his on-field colleagues.

Support for the PCT: Support on-field colleague
ICC expects umpires to communicate effectively and consistently with each other on-field to ensure the right decision is made. High wides, above waist height full tosses, accurate ball count, run outs (which batsman faces the next delivery), and fielding infringements are areas where umpires need to trust each other and work together in order to achieve the outcome that the game expects.

ICC expects umpires to trust each other and project a team ethic. Effective umpires achieve a ‘bond’ on-field and give captains and players confidence in the PCT.

Support for the PCT: Support the Match Referee
ICC expects umpires to support Match Referees by contributing constructively, in an informed and articulate manner, to pre-series briefings.

ICC expects umpires to support Match referees in their duties by ensuring all documentation is completed correctly and in a timely manner – this is vitally important when COC charges are laid.
