Due to the prevailing lockdown conditions in Himachal Pradesh and all over the country, the umpires on the HPCA Panel are also homebound. To utilize this off period in an effective manner, HPCA has decided to conduct ONLINE quizzes on Laws of Cricket and HPCA/ BCCI Playing Conditions.
The aim is to enhance skills and keep the umpires updated about MCC Laws and Playing conditions and well-prepared for the upcoming season and BCCI umpiring exams.
Approximately 3/4 questions every week will be sent to them starting from 5th May 2020. The quiz questions will be mailed to them and Umpires will have to reply the answers back to HPCA (to a dedicated email for Quiz) by 9th May 2020. The model answers will be sent to the umpires on 11th May 2020.
As this activity is specifically for HPCA panel umpires, the exercise will ensure that umpires regularly brush through the Laws of Cricket and Playing Conditions.
Further, to promote cricket umpiring in Himachal Pradesh, any person (below 35 years) who wish to be part of online learning for cricket umpires may register their interest of the same with full personal details mentioning “ NEW CANDIDATE FOR ONLINE UMPIRING LEARNING” in subject line and send Email - firstname.lastname@example.org
