It is a proud moment for the Sri Lankan fans as Kumar Dharmasena and Rajan Madugalle are named in ICC Elite Panel of Umpires and ICC Elite Panel of Referees respectively.
Both of them hail from Sri Lanka and had a good outing in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019. Despite Dharmasena's decision controversy in the final, ICC defended him and included him in the elite panel.
Ranjan Madugalle set the record for becoming the first match referee to officially take part in 300+ ODIs. He still holds the record for being a match referee in the most number of ODIs whereas Dharmasena has conducted 103 One-Day Internationals as umpire.
