Umpire Ian Gould has announced he will retire after standing in this summer’s ICC Cricket World Cup in England.
Gould – who has officiated in 74 Tests, 135 ODIs and 37 Twenty20 internationals – was England’s wicketkeeper in the 1983 World Cup.

Don’t miss a ball as England go for glory on home soil this summer, starting against South Africa on May 30
The 61-year-old is one of 16 umpires and six match referees who will officiate in this summer’s tournament, which begins with hosts England taking on South Africa at the Kia Oval on May 30.
“Ian has made an outstanding contribution to the game over a long period, particularly in the last decade as an international umpire for the ICC,” ICC general manager for cricket Geoff Allardice said.
“He has always put the interests of the game first, and in doing so has earned enormous respect from his colleagues and players across all countries. His presence on the field will be missed, but I am sure his lifelong association with the game will continue.”
Three former Cricket World Cup winners will officiate in the opening match – David Boon as match referee, Kumar Dharmasena as one of the two on-field umpires and Paul Reiffel as the third umpire.
