Roger Dill became the first umpire from the ICC Associates/Affiliates panel to stand in a full ODI when he officiated in tri-nation series between Bermuda, Canada and Zimbabwe in Trinidad in May 2006. He only took up umpiring in 1997 after stepping in when a local match needed someone. "I was told afterwards I didn't do too badly so I went found it fun and interesting and it went from there," he recalled. He subsequently stood in ICC Trophy, Intercontinental Cup and U-19 World Cup matches before being appointed to the Associates/Affiliates panel in April 2005. He is a sergeant in the Bermuda fire brigade.
Test cricket needs to be given back to the people. Everybody must buy in to this bigger picture or the moment will pass us by
