Jamaican Williams to umpire ICC Women's T20 World Cup qualifiers
Jamaican female cricket umpire Jacquline Williams has been appointed to officiate in the International Cricket Council (ICC) Women's T20 World Cup qualifiers set for November 28 to December 6 in Thailand.
The ICC qualifiers will feature eight teams which will see the top two teams, advancing to the ICC Women's T20 World Cup in 2016, to be staged in India.
Williams is a member of the West Indies Cricket Board's Emerging Panel of umpires and will create history next month when she becomes the first female umpire to do on-field duties in a regional first-class match in the West Indies.
She is scheduled to stand in the WICB Professional Cricket League match between Jamaica Scorpions and Guyana Jaguars at Sabina Park between December 11 and 14. Williams will do duties with Peter Nero of Trinidad and Tobago.
Williams left the island yesterday.
