4.1 Judgement

Assessment

All ICC Foundation Modules are competency based. They describe the behaviours that you need to demonstrate in order to be accredited. The evidence of successfully demonstrating theses behaviour may be:

  • Observational: as observed, and noted by a coach (At present this is an ICC Umpire Coach until further notice)
  • Video-based: video evidence of your behaviours demonstrated in a match
  • A combination of observation and video-based evidence

Please re-read the introduction to this module: ‘Introduction: ICC Expectations, Dismissal judgements, Consistency’. These expectations are non-negotiable. They specify the minimum experience that is required before you can be accredited by ICC. Evidence is needed, with observations/reports, of this experience. You are expected to keep an up-to-date and accurate CV of your experiences and appointments. This evidence/information should be available electronically.

You are expected to possess an external hard-drive, or memory-stick, with sufficient memory to store video evidence in an appropriate format. ICC requires you to be responsible for your own professional development; and to be responsible for recording, and updating, this development e.g. Recording an overseas exchange is not sufficient; it must be accompanied by a detailed report of the your competencies and professional behaviours during the exchange. This report will be provided by an ICC Umpire Coach.

4.1 Judgement of short deliveries/full tosses (from square)

You must successfully demonstrate:
A high degree of accuracy in making decisions relating to short deliveries/full tosses when standing at the striker’s end (square)

ICC expects you to be prepared and ready to make a decision from the first ball of the innings (seeUmpire Preparation File’ opposite). As striker’s end umpire you are in the best position to judge short deliveries/full tosses during a match. You must be ready to assist your partner with a signal that indicates that the ball has (or would have) passed between the shoulder and head of a striker, or that the ball has (or would have) passed over the head of the striker, or that the ball is a waist-high full toss.  ICC expects you, as bowler’s end umpire, to trust your colleague’s call / signal from square leg and go with that unless he is unsighted. You are expected to use the 3rd umpire if there is a dismissal off a full toss or a multiple bouncer in that over.

You must demonstrate consistent alertness and awareness to the possibility of short deliveries that will carry a penalty (No ball, Wide), warning (Full toss), or allowance (One for the over). ICC expects you to demonstrate these behaviours automatically as part of your on-field routines.
