Profile

Rudi Koerzten is a modern umpire in the traditional mould, with an image that is a curious blend of old and new - his flat white cap is offset by a pair of wraparound shades that rarely leave his face except in the poorest of conditions, while his trademark is a dalek-like, super slow (and getting slower) raise of the fatal finger to exterminate a batsman's innings.
