The 52nd Tun Abdul Razak Cup was recently held in Kuantan from 15 to 24 August 2014. 14 umpires from 5 states were involved in our prestigious inter-states tournament in the country. Under the guidance of Amarjit Singh and Kanaisan Kanapathy who were the UM and Assistant UM respectively, the umpires were fortunate to have a strong coaching team to guide them throughout the tournament.
Apart from officiating matches, the umpiring team made full use of this opportunity to hold dialogue sessions regarding the challenges facing Malaysian umpiring. We have concluded that everybody must play their role and work together as a team in order to alleviate our performance nation-wide.
The tournament went on smoothly with exciting finals in both divisions to cap a marvelously officiated competition. We sincerely hope the experience gained from this tournament will start as a platform to boost our overall umpiring standard towards a higher level.
