Englishmen Richard Illingworth and Richard Kettleborough have been selected as on-field umpires for the upcoming World Cup summit clash between India and Australia. Kettleborough previously stood in the final of the 2015 World Cup, and Illingworth appeared in the 1992 Cricket World Cup final as a player. More than 93,000 spectators watched the 2015 final at the MCG, but a larger crowd is expected for the upcoming match in Ahmedabad, India. The host nation is hoping to replicate their 2011 triumph on home soil.
In addition to Illingworth and Kettleborough, Joel Wilson of Trinidad and Tobago will also be officiating the grand finale. These experienced officials will play a crucial role in ensuring fair play and maintaining the integrity of the game during this highly anticipated match.
