CRICKET UMPIRING RECRUTIMENT POLICY
To The Editor, The Hindu LACUNA IN POLICY OF RECRUITING UMPIRES ON RANJI PANEL DURING THE EARLIER LAST TWO DECADES OF 2000, THE BCCI HAD LAST CONDUCTED ONLY THREE UMPIRING EXAMINATIONS I.E. IN THE YEAR 1980, 1990 & 1997, WHILE AFTER A GAP OF ALMOST 10 YEARS IN THE BEGINNING OF THE 21ST CENTURY THERE WERE TWO BACK TO BACK EXAMINATIONS WERE HELD, I.E. IN FEBRUARY, 2006 AT NEW DELHI AND OF LATE ON 5TH SEPTEMBER, 2008 AT MOHALI, CHANDIGARH. THE WRATH OF THE STORY OF CONDUCTING IRREGULAR EXAMINATION WHICH RESULTED IN MANY SR. UMPIRES OF DIFFERENT ASSOCIATIONS LEFT STRANDED AND THEIR DREAMS OF BECOMING NATIONAL UMPIRE SHATTERED WITH A DIFFERENT AND SUDDEN CHANGED POLICY DECISIONS. I WOULD LIKE TO PIN POINT SOME OF THE HIERARCHY OF THESE WRETCHED UMPIRES. 1. DUE TO VERY IRREGULAR EXAMINATION AND DIFFERENT POLICY MATTERS DECISIONS DEPRIVED MANY OF THE ASPIRANT SR. UMPIRES OF GETTING FAIR AND ENOUGH CHANCE TO APPEAR IN THE BCCI EXAMINATION. 2. THE BCCI SHOULD NOT IMPOSE ANY AGE RESTRICTION SINCE THE EXAMS ARE HELD AT VERY IRREGULAR INTERVALS. ONCE THEY SETTLE WITH REGULAR EXAMINATIONS THEN AND THEN ONLY THEY CAN IMPOSE SOME RESTRICTIONS ON AGE CRITERIA, ETC. 3. DUE TO DEFERRED AGE CRITERIA MANY SR. UMPIRES MISSED 2006 EXAM AFTER IT HAD HELD EXAM IN THE YEAR 1997. 4. LIKE OTHER SPORTS DISCIPLINE THE EXAM SHOULD BE HELD BI-ANNUALLY AND SHOULD BE OPEN TO ANYBODY WHO WANTS TO APPEAR. AT PRESENT YOU ALLOW ONLY 4 CANDIDATES FROM EACH AFFILIATED UNITS AND AS SUCH ONLY THOSE WHO ARE CLOSE TO OFFICE BEARERS ARE CHOSEN AND SENT TO APPEAR. THOSE WHO APPEAR IN THE STATE PANEL EXAM AND ARE NO. 1, 2, & 3 ARE NOT EVEN CONSIDERED, AS IT HAPPENED RECENTLY WITH THE BARODA CRICKET ASSOCIATION. 5. BASED ON THE LOCAL MATCH REPORTS, ASSOCIATIONS AT PRESENT ARE EXPECTED TO RECOMMEND THE MAXIMUM 4 NAMES THIS IS TOTALLY INCORRECT TO BAR PEOPLE WHO ARE NOT CONNECTED WITH ANY ASSOCIATION TO NOT TO BE CONSIDERED FOR APPEARING. IT SHOULD BE OPEN. SOME OF THE ASSOCIATIONS HAVE SYSTEMATIC APPROACH TO AN IDENTIFICATION-DEVELOPING UMPIRE PROCESS BUT BY AND LARGE A LOT OF MANIPULATIVE METHODS ARE WITNESSED IN MANY OTHER ASSOCIATIONS. HOWEVER, RESTRICTION SHOULD BE THERE THAT THEY MUST PASS EXAM HELD BY ANY STATE ASSOCIATION AND SHOULD HAVE EXPERIENCE OF UMPIRING IN ANY LOCAL TOURNAMENTS. IN VIEW OF WHAT HAS BEEN STATED ABOVE, WE WOULD REQUEST BCCI TO REVIEW THE POLICY OF RECRUITING CRICKET UMPIRES. DUE TO OLD SYSTEM AND LACUNA IN THE SYSTEM MANY ASPIRANT UMPIRES, WHO ARE STILL IN THE JOB, FAILED TO GET A FAIR CHANCE TO APPEAR IN THE EXAMINATION. HOPE THE BCCI WITH THE HELP OF CONCERNED AND APPROPRIATE AUTHORITY WILL WORK OUT A NEW STRATEGY TO RECRUIT THE UMPIRES FOR THE BCCI MATCHES. THE SUGGESTIONS ARE ENCLOSED FOR YOUR KIND PERUSAL.
