Gundappa Viswanath, Mike Procter and Clive Lloyd will take on ICC Match Referee duties for the three forthcoming series in England, involving the host country, Sri Lanka and India.

Viswanath, the veteran of 91 Test matches for India, will be in charge of the three Test England v Sri Lanka series featuring matches at Lord's (16th to 20th May), Edgbaston (30th May to 3rd June) and Old Trafford (13th to 17th June).

The ICC Playing Control Team for the series will also feature Elite Panel umpires Venkat and Daryl Harper (Lord's and Edgbaston) and Steve Bucknor and David Orchard (Old Trafford).

Bucknor and Orchard will stay on to stand in the Nat West Triangular Series, which will also mark Mike Procter's first appearance in the country as a member of the new five man ICC Referees panel.

Clive Lloyd, in his second spell as an ICC Match Referee, has been appointed to officiate in the England v India Test series. Elite Panel umpires for the Tests will be Rudi Koertzen and Russell Tiffin (Lord's, 25th to 29th July and Trent Bridge, 8th to 12th August) and Asoka De Silva and David Orchard (Headingley, 22nd to 26th August and The Oval, 5th to 9th September.)

Lloyd, the former West Indies captain, will also be in charge for the innovative One Day International series between Australia and Pakistan in June. Two of the three matches will be played indoors in Melbourne (12th and 15th June), with the third staged outdoors at the Gabba in Brisbane (19th June), a city with a fine, dry winter climate.

Russell Tiffin will stand in all three games.
