Umpire

(Sport: Cricket)

Definition

Two umpires control play on the field; one stands behind the wicket at the bowler's end and the other at square leg. They are responsible for deciding whether or not a player is out, and for deciding if conditions are fit enough to play - if not, they may take the players off the pitch because of rain or bad light.
