Bill Shepherd, the younger brother of cricketer and umpire David, was a good player in his own right, and David often said he was the better of them. He spent time on the Lord's groundstaff, scoring a hundred at Lord's, and returned to play for Devon as an offspinning allrounder. He subsequently switched to umpiring.
He understands the Indian mentality better and doesn't have to deal with star players on the wane
