David Boon join as ICC Match Referee

International Cricket Council (ICC) today announced that former Australia batsman David Boon will replace compatriot Alan Hurst as Match Referee. Hurst announced his retirement, effective from the conclusion of his upcoming assignments in England. "Alan is an outstanding and consummate referee. He has raised the level of professionalism in refereeing. His leadership qualities, integrity and passion for cricket will be missed. It is fitting that he will reach his ODI century at Lords - a memorable milestone for Alan.
"We welcome David Boon to the elite panel. He has already served the game so well as an international cricketer of repute and standing, a national vice-captain, a national selector and administrator. We look forward to working with David and have no doubt that he will make a strong and important contribution to ensuring that the game is played and officiated in a manner befitting to great spirit," ICC's umpires' and referees' manager Vince Van Der Bijl said in a statement.
