A non-nonsense umpire, Russell Tiffin was a wicketkeeper-batsman who represented Mashonaland before Zimbabwe's Logan Cup was accorded first-class status, and he was persuaded to take up umpiring when still only 30. Within six years he stood in his first Test, and in 2002 was appointed to the ICC Elite panel. But he was left off the panel in 2004, standing in his last Test in March of that year, but he continues to officiate in Zimbabwe's home internationals. It seems unlikely that he will return to the top flight given the paucity of first-class cricket inside Zimbabwe.
