Mumbai: The BCCI has given the names of four Indian umpires – Sudhir Asnani, S Ravi, Vineet Kulkarni and SS Shamshuddin – to the ICC for consideration for the 2012-13 international season. The decision was taken by the BCCI’s Umpires Committee to recommend Asnani and S Ravi - both of whom have officiated in international matches – and TV umpires Kulkarni and Shamshuddin to the international panel.
Asnani, 51, has umpired in seven ODIs and two Twenty20s since he made his international debut in May 1998. Ravi, 46, has officiated in two ODIs and a single Twenty20 since October 2011. Neither of Kulkarni, 32, or Shamshuddin, 42, have any international experience.
