Officials for the 2011 Cricket World Cup were selected by the Umpire selection panel and the information was released on 12 December, 2010.

It also selected 5 match referees for the event.
The umpire selection panel consisted of David Richardson (ICC General Manager - Cricket), Ranjan Madugalle (ICC Chief Match Referee), David Lloyd (former player, coach, umpire and now television commentator) and Srinivas Venkataraghavan (former elite panel umpire).
Out of the selected umpires, 12 of them belong to the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires while the rest 6 belong to the International Panel of Umpires and Referees. In addition, a reserve umpire Enamul Haque has been selected from Bangladesh who will officiate in the warm up matches and if required, during the event.
