Dill blazes a trail in Trinidad
Roger Dill provides an inspiring story of how you can go from novice to world-class in less than a decade. This week, Dill will become the first member of the ICC's Associate and Affiliate umpires' panel to stand in a one-day international during the opening match of the tri-series between Zimbabwe, Bermuda and Canada which is being held in Trinidad.
"I started in 1997 when I went to watch a friend playing and they were short of an umpire. I was told afterwards I didn't do too badly so I went to a few meetings to learn more, I found it fun and interesting and it went from there."
