Wisden Cricketers' Almanack obituary
MAMSA, AHMED MOHAMMED, died on November 14, 2005, aged 86. Born in Burma, he umpired six Tests in India between 1963-64 and 1972-73, and 57 other first-class matches. Mamsa also trained would-be umpires for the Mumbai Cricket Association. Piloo Reporter, a Test umpire himself, remembered: "He was totally different from today's breed of umpires in the sense that he rarely indulged in friendly banter with either players or his colleagues in the field. He used to insist on upcoming umpires like me being well-versed with the Laws of the game. `Otherwise the Laws will pinch you,' he used to say."
