Umpire Ravi Big Achievement

Another Feather in Ravi's Hat 

Inducted into the MCC Laws Sub Committee, will work alongside Mentor Simon Taufel for three years reviewing the Laws of Cricket

'Great Honour (as an Indian Umpire)  to be included in the Prestigious Committee' - Sundaram Ravi
Umpire S Ravi (http://prtraveller.blogspot.in/2013/08/s-ravi-set-for-umpiring-test-debut.html), who will be officiating in the Boxing Day Ashes Test later this month, has just been inducted into the prestigious MCC Laws Sub Committee.  

The Sub Committee, which sits under the principal Cricket Committee, undertakes global consultation in order to govern the Laws. MCC is the Guardian of the Laws and Spirit of Cricket.

Ravi will be joining his Mentor and former Elite Umpire Simon Taufel on the Sub Committee.
Ravi, who was elevated into the ICC Elite Panel in 2015 and has been there three years in a row (http://prtraveller.blogspot.in/2017/08/umpire-s-ravi.html) is now on the verge of a big umpiring milestone. He is just three matches away from becoming the 2nd most capped Indian umpire behind Venkataraghavan. 

Three years in a row, he has umpired at Lords (http://prtraveller.blogspot.in/2015/05/umpire-ravi-debuts-at-lords.html). He also had the privilege of umpiring in the first ever Pink Ball Test.

Ravi will be umpiring the last two tests of the Ashes series at the MCG and SCG.

Immediately after being informed of his appointment, Ravi told prtraveller that he considers it a great honour (as an Indian Umpire) to be included in the MCC Laws Sub Committee 'It is a big responsibility.' 

He said that the committee will meet periodically to review the Laws of Cricket.

Only recently, MCC introduced the new Code of Laws, the first of its kind since the 2000 Code. This one - the 2017 Code- is the 6th Code since its introduction in 1788.The Sub- Committee will oversee  this code over the next three years.
