English umpire Ian Gould will retire after the 2019 World Cup to finish a 13-year career as an official in the international game.

Gould, who played 18 ODIs for England and was part of the 1983 World Cup, joined the ECB's first-class umpires' list in 2002 and made his debut as an international umpire in a T20 between England and Sri Lanka in 2006. He stood in his first ODI a few days after that and his first Test - between South Africa and Bangladesh in Bloemfontein - two years later.

This year's World Cup will be Gould's fourth and he is one of 16 ICC umpires confirmed for the tournament.

"Ian has made an outstanding contribution to the game over a long period, particularly in the last decade as an international umpire for the ICC," Geoff Allardice, the ICC general manager of cricket, said. "He has always put the interests of the game first, and in doing so has earned enormous respect from his colleagues and players across all countries. His presence on the field will be missed, but I am sure his lifelong association with the game will continue."

To date, Gould has stood in 74 Tests (alongside being the TV umpire in a further 25), 135 ODIs and 37 T20Is.
