T20 World Cup: England referee Michael Koff resigns for violating life safety protocol | Cricket News

England referee Michael Koff will no longer oversee the T20 World Cup for violating biosecurity rules

Following the breach of match safety rules, England referee Michael Koff will no longer oversee the T20 World Cup.

Koff, a former Durham opener between 1998 and 2003, was part of the International Cricket Council’s elite panel of arbitrators, who was accused of violating the Corona virus protocol.

Although the ICC has not confirmed the exact nature of its violation, players, team staff, officials and broadcasters have entered the ‘bubble’ environment to protect the competition in the midst of the Kovid epidemic-19.

A statement from the ICC said: “The ICC today confirmed that referee Michael Koff will not be nominated for the next 2021 ICC T20 Men’s World Cup as a result of violations of life safety standards.

“The ICC recognizes the long periods spent over the past two years in biosafety conditions and will continue to support the well-being of all competing authorities operating in this environment.”

Koff was scheduled to officiate on Sunday in the Super 12 clash between India and New Zealand, but was replaced by South Africa’s Marice Erasmus.

The 41-year-old was next appointed to serve as a TV referee for the West Indies against Sri Lanka on Thursday before being New Zealand’s field officer against Afghanistan on Sunday.

However, he will now be transferred to these roles.

The T20 World Cup can be watched live in the sky by November 14th.
