Subject: WICUA Final Written Exam Results 2018


Dear Colleague Umpires,


WICUA Final Witten Exam Results for 2018. Congratulations to all the successful candidates who have attained the pass mark of 70% and above. To those who were not successful this time, continue to persevere by putting in the hard work and you will surely be rewarded.


I would like to the trainers who spent an enormous amount of time preparing these candidates for this exam. Please note that the work is not yet complete and there are two other aspects of the exam to complete the process. I challenge you to continue to support your charges until the desired results are achieved.


Please note information from the Chairman that should help us to synchronize this process and make it much better.



Vivian Johnson






Dear Secretaries,




  1. Please see below the results of the West Indies Cricket Umpires Association Final Written (Level 2) Examination held on Sunday 19th August 2018, congratulations are extended to all candidates who participated in the examination and the success gained. Success being the ability to be resilient and endure to the end.

  2. A total of 52 candidates completed the examination with 35 being successful and 17 having to try again when the next examination is held, this represents 67.30% success, while it is a higher percentage than last year a lot more work is needed by candidates to be prepared.

  3. This examination represents another step in the career building block; it is the foundation that must one must build on to become stronger and more durable. Continue to study the laws to become the next qualified umpire.

  4. Congratulations is extended to Shemar Michael Boyce of Barbados Cricket Umpires Association, he achieved 93% a demonstration of the hard work and dedication he would have put into his studies.

  5. Advice to candidates: the method of answering question, as short as possible, to the point and relevant to the question only, avoid repeating the question in your answers.

  6. To trainers: the questions on bowled, LBW, follow on (commencement of play), last hour, deliberate short run, deliberate no ball, Level 4 offences, are the areas to look at from this examination.

  7. General: a more practical approach is needed to training with; regular sessions, diagrams, scenarios, pictures, videos, role play and mock examinations, these can assist with better logical thinking.


    Best regards

    Peter Nero

Laws of Cricket 2017 Code (New)

Explanation of Changes to the 7th Edition




As a people we are indeed living in a changing world. Some persons are afraid of changes and for diverse reasons. From the outset changes are affected for better and not for worse, however sometimes the dreams and the aspirations are not achieved, this brings to fore such words as failure, disappointment and grief.  Conversely more often than not you hear of joy, success, progress and just reward.

As umpires there has been significant changes in the umpiring landscape, the numbers required for some category of matches have been severely tailored to the point that some umpires felt not motivated, whilst some have experienced financial and status driven reward and are extremely happy.

The truth has always been that changes are intended for good. Umpires need to look at the bright side and remain focused. At all stages not every umpire would have made it to the Elite or ICC Panel or the WICB Regional Panel. This should not in any way be a hindrance, instead an umpire should work hard to reach the top with determination.

Cricket umpiring should not be seen as offering a service for free, it is a business and it has pay days.  This therefore should provide the drive, the impetus thus acting as a stimulus for one’s motivation. Notwithstanding however WICUA has a duty to be, if not ahead of the game, at least should be close to it. WICUA ought to provide the leadership necessary to keep hopes and aspirations alive.  There are ways that WICUA can forge, which may assist in enhancing the quality of umpiring life.  One such way is to organize and work with territories in trying to establish an Umpires Exchange Programme within WICUA.  This is actively under consideration for the future.

Please get in touch to offer comments and join our mailing list.
