The match referees will be Chris Broad, while the on-field officials will be Michael Gough and Richard Illingworth. The TV umpire will be Richard Kettleborough, while the fourth official will be Alex Wharf.
Adrian Griffith, ICC Senior Manager – Umpires and Referees, stated, “We are thrilled to announce an experienced panel of match officials for the World Test Championship final.”
