Singh passes West Indies Umpires Association exams!

Daniel Singh's elevation to the West Indies Cricket Umpires Association doesnt mean his playing days are over, but marks a new beginning to his dedication to the Sport and its development.
ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI – Daniel Singh is now officially a member of the West Indies Cricket Umpires Association (WICUA) having successfully passed the oral and practical examinations.

Singh, who has umpired both locally, in St Maarten and the USVI in order to gain the necessary experience, scored a combined total of 88 marks in both the written and oral exams to place him amongst the top 10 percent in his 2011 graduating class of over 67 regional umpires.

Commenting on Singh’s achievement and that of the others who passed, Clyde Cumberbatch, the Chairman of WICUA Training and Examination Committee said, “On this day and forward WICUA expects you to continue to be of service to your respective countries and more so to the umpiring body. Let your success be a motivating factor with an aim of aspiring to the highest level in umpiring.”

Singh now joins the likes of Leeward Islands’ senior umpire Clancy Mack, the president of the local Umpires’ Association, and Andrew Greaves on the list of Umpires eligible to stand in regional matches as well as being considered for further experience at the National level.

As for his next move Singh stated, “I hope to now move on more actively with the formation of the BVI Cricket Umpires Association and of course will be standing in the Nagico 2020 Domestic Tournament.”

The candidate who attained the highest percentage was Mohammed Baksh of the United States of America (USA) with 98%, followed by Nazar Ali (USA); Barry Singh and Kellman Kowlessar both Trinidadians each attaining 97%.

    I knew Johnny was a phoney. Here's a Cricket article and he has no comment. But he's the first to comment on every horse racing article. I told you all to stop taking him on. HE'S FROM RIGHT HERE AND A BIG HORSE RACING FAN.
