London:In an effort to arrest the decline in umpiring standards, the International Cricket Council (ICC) has decided to recruit an umpires' high performance manager who will work with its contracted officials.

The chief responsibility of the person to be chosen for the new post would be to help develop all ICC contracted umpires by introducing and monitoring training and development programmes, the game's world governing body said in a statement.

The development programmes should cover the areas of physical and mental conditioning, skill development, match preparation and match day activities.

The person would be required to monitor, review and provide critical appraisal of the umpires' performance as well as feedback and counselling on a regular and professional basis, the ICC added.
