West Indies Cricket Umpires' Association. Est. 1962


Welcome to the WICUA website.

We hope to provide all visitors with accurate, timely and complete  information.
Keep up-to-date with what is happening with the WICUA by visiting our website

On this home page we'll introduce our organization and highlight important areas on our site.





This year forty three (43) candidates wrote the WICUA 2014 Final Written examination, 98% or forty two candidates pass the examinations.  The 2014 WICUA top candidate is BERNADETTE REID of Jamaica, her score was 98%, and the second highest mark came from RAJESH BABU-JALLI of USA who attained a score of 96% in the final written examination. Congratulations to all successful candidates.

Based on the above results, WICUA is well on its way at strengthening the resources of professional Umpires. Let me say to that you have just completed step 2 in the career path of a qualified umpire. Your next focus should be getting your mind and body in the game of play, standing behind the wicket is not an easy task but your trainers will ensure that you are prepared for your next stage in becoming a qualified WICUA umpire.

Let me urge on WICUA’s unsuccessful candidate, this is not the end, go back review the laws ask your lecturer/s for guidance, work with your fellow colleagues to understand the laws and come back at the next sitting and make a good attempt at the paper.

Special thank you to my fellow WICUA lecturers for your time spent at ensuring the success of our future WICUA umpires.


Clyde Cumberbatch

Chairman, Training & Examination Committee







Please note that we have set November 23, 2014 as the date for the WICUA Oral Exam 2014.  As you are aware, December has become difficult for travelling and has been posing logistical challenges.

Season greetings to one and all.

Colleagues All


 Our 26th Convention has come and gone. From reports it is justifiable to say it was a success.  All that we had achieved was the consequence of the hard work put in by our constituents.


Our continued success will depend on how we proceed hereafter and I challenge us to do the best we can and to support whatever initiatives we put in place to enhance our image and existence.


It is an understatement to say that we need money to boltster the finances of the association as it is a given that it is so. Your help will be needed to ensure that whatever is to be channeled to the coffers of WICU be done as in doing just that we will grow financially.


2013-2015 should be an interesting period as the mandate of the convention is geared towards positive undertakings.


I beg of you to respond to emails promptly at all times particularly when asked for an input in given situations.


I beg of you to get your constituents to understand the role of WICUA and to submit to its dictates.


I beg of you to carry out the functions that the office you hold requires of you with professionalism, commitment and dedication.


The secretariat under the guidance of Vivian Johnson did a fantastic job and has been doing so ever since he took up the mantle of service. With his assistant and treasurer Norman Malcolm they both are key players in the overall scheme of things.


I welcome to the fold with sincerity Goland Greaves and our promoted colleague Billy Doctrove.


We have a great team and I look forward to great things for WICUA


Best wishes to all and may the good Lord Bless and Keep us.

As a people we are indeed living in a changing world. Some persons are afraid of changes and for diverse reasons. From the outset changes are affected for better and not for worse, however sometimes the dreams and the aspirations are not achieved, this brings to fore such words as failure, disappointment and grief.  Conversely more often than not you hear of joy, success, progress and just reward.

As umpires there has been significant changes in the umpiring landscape, the numbers required for some category of matches have been severely tailored to the point that some umpires felt not motivated, whilst some have experienced financial and status driven reward and are extremely happy.

The truth has always been that changes are intended for good. Umpires need to look at the bright side and remain focused. At all stages not every umpire would have made it to the Elite or ICC Panel or the WICB Regional Panel. This should not in any way be a hindrance, instead an umpire should work hard to reach the top with determination.

Cricket umpiring should not be seen as offering a service for free, it is a business and it has pay days.  This therefore should provide the drive, the impetus thus acting as a stimulus for one’s motivation. Notwithstanding however WICUA has a duty to be, if not ahead of the game, at least should be close to it. WICUA ought to provide the leadership necessary to keep hopes and aspirations alive.  There are ways that WICUA can forge, which may assist in enhancing the quality of umpiring life.  One such way is to organize and work with territories in trying to establish an Umpires Exchange Programme within WICUA.  This is actively under consideration for the future.

Please get in touch to offer comments and join our mailing list.
