New Zealand umpire Derek Walker is about to raise his third century in as many months.

The former Otago cricketer will stand 100th first-class match when Otago’s sixth-round Plunket Shield clash with Central Districts gets underway in his hometown of Dunedin.

Walker already clocked an umpiring ton in List A cricket last month to go with his Twenty20 umpiring century in mid-December.

A useful left-handed batsman and right-arm slow-medium pacer, Walker played 40 first-class games for Otago and 31 one-dayers across the 1980s and made his umpiring debut at that level in Christchurch in January 2005, some 17 years after playing his last first-class game.

He was a member of the International Cricket Council’s second-tier International Umpires Panel in 2012 and made his international debut in a Twenty20 International (T20I) in Auckland in February 2013. 

Walker went on to stand in a total of eight T20Is and nine One Day Internationals with his last international outing being in February 2016 and has officiated in Australia, South Africa and Sri Lanka.
