Suspended Officials[edit]

Five of the ICC's top officials were suspended from duty for the 2007 Twenty20 World Championship by way of punishment for the chaotic end to the final of the 2007 Cricket World Cup, where they incorrectly interpreted the playing conditions. The suspended officials are umpires Steve Bucknor, Aleem Dar, Rudi Koertzen and Billy Bowden, along with referee Jeff Crowe, all of whom are members of the ICC's elite panels.

The suspension of these officials means that at least one of the umpires in the final will be taking charge of their first major ICC final, with Simon Taufel the only umpire chosen who has previously stood in a final (that being the final of the 2004 ICC Champions Trophy).

Style of Umpiring[edit]

The fast-paced, exciting nature of Twenty20 cricket has led to some umpires in domestic Twenty20 competitions using much more flamboyant signals than they would otherwise use. The ICC has, however, issued special instructions to the umpires, telling them to remain calm and to officiate in their normal manner, so as not to distract spectators from the cricket and to ensure that they are concentrating fully on any decisions they may be asked to make.
