Delhi. Cricket is a game of uncertainties, in which players’ records are made and broken. On Thursday, the ground is going to witness a new record in Sydney. Claire Polosak will become the first woman to officiate in a men’s test match played in Sydney between India and Australia. The 32-year-old Polosak of Australia’s New South Wales will play Chathe as the umpire. She had earlier achieved the feat of becoming the first woman umpire to officiate in a Men’s ODI International cricket match. He also officiated in the World Cricket League Division Two match between Namibia and Oman in 2019. Claire Polosak has a long experience in cricket. In the third four-match match between India and Australia, two former fast bowlers Paul Riffel and Paul Wilson will play the on-field umpires while Bruce Oxenford will be the third television umpire. David Boon will be the match referee.
The fourth umpire is appointed by the domestic cricket board from the International Panel of ICC Umpires according to ICC rules for Test matches. This is an achievement for Claire Polosak and will be a new record for women umpiring. Polosak is the first woman to officiate in the 2017 men’s domestic List A match in Australia.
The umpire’s job includes bringing a new ball to the ground, taking a drink for the umpires, taking care of the pitch during lunch and tea, and checking the lights from the lightmeter. In every situation, after the on-field umpire withdraws, the third umpire is required to serve in the field while the umpire has to play the role of television umpire. Claire Polosak is ready for every role of cricket umpiring.
