Gerard Abood and Shawn Craig have been appointed to the Marsh One-Day Cup Final between Queensland and Western Australia at Allan Border Field in Brisbane.

Abood’s appointment in the middle for his first One-Day Cup final completes his treble of domestic men’s finals, having stood in the 2017/18 Sheffield Shield and 2018/19 KFC BBL finals. Tuesday’s final will be Craig’s second domestic men’s final after his appointment to the 2017/18 KFC BBL final. 

The pair stand in the final having been appointed to various white-ball matches already this season.

Craig commenced his season with appointments to the Women’s T20 International and One-Day International Series’ between Australia and Sri Lanka before standing in Marsh One-Day Cup fixtures. 

Phil Gillespie has been appointed Third Umpire for the final having previously fulfilled this role in the 2017/18 Sheffield Shield final.
