Cricket Australia congratulates Australian international umpire Bruce Oxenford following the announcement he will be retiring from international cricket in April.
Oxenford umpired in 62 Test matches and has been a member of the ICC Elite Panel of Umpires since 2012.
Oxenford took part in three ICC Men’s Cricket World Cups, three ICC Men’s T20 World Cups and two ICC Women’s T20 World Cups.
Drew Ginn, Cricket Australia’s Executive General Manager, High Performance, praised Oxenford’s contribution to Australian cricket, and umpiring.
“Bruce has been a wonderful servant to the game and his incredible record speaks for itself.”
“He represented Australia all over the world and at multiple World Cups.
“Bruce is not only one of the best umpires Australia has produced, he has also been a great asset to developing umpires and match officials, and for that we are all incredibly thankful.

“It is fitting that his last Test series took place in Australia, and his final Test match was in his home state of Queensland and at the same place he made his international umpiring debut at the Gabba back in 2006.
“We look forward to Bruce’s continued involvement in Australian cricket, and everyone at Cricket Australia congratulates him on a marvellous international umpiring career.”
