Richard Illingworth to become first neutral umpire in Test cricket since coronavirus pandemic
ICC has named Richard Illingworth as a match official for the upcoming Test series between Bangladesh and West Indies. In June 2020, ICC had temporarily removed neutral umpires owing to the logistical challenges with international travel. Illingworth will become the first neutral umpire in a Test since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic. The two-match Test series will start from February 3.
