Cricket Australia (CA) Supplementary Umpire Panel (SUP) member Claire Polosak and National Match Referee Panel (NRP) member Bob Stratford have been appointed to another ICC tournament.

The pair will travel to Japan to officiate in the ICC Under 19 Cricket World Cup East Asia Pacific (EAP) Qualifying tournament. The 10-game tournament kicks off on Sunday 2 June through until Saturday 8 June and will feature Japan, Samoa, Fiji, Papua New Guinea and Vanuatu. The winning team will qualify directly for the Under 19 Cricket World Cup which will be held in South Africa in January and February 2020.

Polosak carries on her international commitments following a successful recent trip to Namibia to officiate in the 50-Over World Cup Qualifying event which saw her make an unprecedented One-Day International Debut. Bob Stratford recently officiated in the East Asia Pacific region when he was the appointed Match Referee in the ICC World Twenty20 East Asia-Pacific Region Qualifier B in the Philippines back in December.
