Cricket Australia National Umpire Panel Member Paul Wilson has been appointed by the ICC to the One-Day International Series between India and the West Indies in India.

Wilson will stand on-field in the first, third and fifth matches and fulfill TV Umpire duties in the remaining games of the Series. This will be the second time that Wilson has been appointed to an international series as an ICC neutral Umpire, having officiated in the ICC World Cup Qualifying Tournament in Zimbabwe in March 2018. Wilson was appointed to the final of that tournament as TV Umpire. His last on-field match in that tournament was the Super-Sixes match between the West Indies and Scotland.

Wilson made his One-Day International Debut in November 2014 in the Series between Hong Kong and Papua New Guinea in Townsville. The Series consisted of two One-Day Internationals between the two nations of which Wilson stood in both matches. Wilson has gone on to stand in One-Day Internationals on Australia soil featuring visitors India, Pakistan and New Zealand. In total, Wilson has officiated on-field in 12 One-Day Internationals with a further four as TV Umpire.

In the shortest format, Wilson has officiated on-field in eight T20 Internationals with a further five appointments as TV Umpire. Wilson has also officiated as Fourth Umpire in Test Matches on nine occasions. Earlier this year, Wilson formed part of an International Panel of Umpires to officiate in the Under 19 World Cup in New Zealand. This followed his appointment to the 2017 ICC Women’s World Cup in the United Kingdom which included appointment to the Final at Lords as TV Umpire.

Wilson will join Englishmen Ian Gould and Match Referee Chris Broad to form the Playing Control Team for the five-match limited overs series. The final team of four Match Officials will be completed with an appointment from the Indian Cricket Board (BCCI).
