INTERGEN ANZ CHAMPIONSHIP UMPIRES
In early seasons, Australian umpires officiated at matches played in Australia, and New Zealand umpires officiated at matches played in New Zealand.
In 2011 for the first time, two New Zealand umpires officiated at three all Australian matches, and two Australian umpires officiated at three all New Zealand matches, which continued in 2012 and will continue in 2013. This initiative was put in place to assist in understanding any differences in umpiring techniques between the two countries, and provide both teams and umpires with exposure to different styles which may exist.
At the completion of the regular rounds, the best two umpires from each country will create a pool of four to officiate the four Finals Series matches.
