Sanjay Hazare is the first International umpire from Vadodara, and second from Gujarat after Amish Saheba. He has served as a TV umpire in three Test matches, and has been a reserve umpire in one test match. He has also acted as a TV umpire in 12 ODIs and in one T20I; and as reserve umpire in one ODI.
International Cricket Council (ICC) made him a part of the International Panel of ICC Umpires on 2 August 2009. Samarjitsinh Gaekwad, the then vice-president of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), said, "Hazare has a good umpiring record and his name was discussed during the meet of umpires committee of BCCI. He was selected considering his talent and we are proud to have an international umpire with us now." About his selection, Hazare said,"It is due to the efforts of senior Baroda Cricket Association (BCA) officials that I made it to the panel," adding,"I have been conveyed about my selection by BCA authorities, but I am yet to receive official letter from BCCI." However the BCCI didn't recommended his name for the 2011 cricket season, citing his performance, which was evaluated by the match referees of the ICC.
