Each umpire has been allotted a series of matches. It is up to each umpire and each team captain to communicate with each other should there be any changes to the official list. Changes should be communicated asap but the very latest being 5pm match day.

By communication we mean person to person phone call and not a message left to a machine.

The handbook will be updated to accommodate the changes
