Jamaican umpire, Jacqueline Williams, was selected by the International Cricket Council, ICC, among the list of match officials for the semi-finals of the ICC Women’s T20 World Cup.

Williams, who has been a regional and international official for close to a decade, will be on field for the second semi-final between hosts South Africa and England on Friday, at Newlands in Cape Town.

Claire Polosak of Australia will be the other umpire in the middle alongside Williams, with Eloise Sheridan as TV umpire and Vrinda Rathi as the fourth umpire.

India’s GS Lakshmi will be the match referee.

Williams is a very experienced umpire having officiated in men’s and women’s internationals since 2019.

So far, she has stood in 99 internationals – men’s and women’s.

Therefore, Friday’s semi-final will mark the milestone of her 100th international.

She has also stood in nine first-class matches and 19 List-A matches.

The ICC also announced that New Zealand’s Kim Cotton and Nimali Perera of Sri Lanka will take charge of the other semi-finals between Australia and India on Thursday also at Newlands.
