Umpire Malcolm retires after 30 years


KINGSTON, Jamaica - Jamaican Norman Malcolm has announced his retirement as a senior umpire in regional cricket.

Malcolm, who is quitting as a member of the West Indies Cricket Board Senior Panel of Umpires, has been a veteran of more than 30 years.

He rose to the level of the ICC international panel and stood in 27 one day internationals between 2008 and 2011.

Malcolm made his ODI debut in June 2008 when he officiated in the second match of the series between West Indies and Australia in St Georges, Grenada.

His last ODI match was in North Sound Antigua in 2011 between West Indies and India.

Malcolm, who also stood in seven Twenty20 matches at the ICC level, says he will continue to officiate at the local level.

He was re-elected as president of the Jamaica Cricket Umpires’ Association over the weekend.
