Former international umpire Simon Taufel believes that the India-Pakistan matches are not easy to officiate.

Simon Taufel was the best umpire during his time and he officiated in famous Test series, World Cup finals and a lot of important white-ball games. He is currently working with the ICC to produce quality umpires in international cricket.

The online course for umpires is not only about the laws of the game but it also involves man management, technique, preparation and communication skills.

Taufel once proposed Virender Sehwag to take up umpiring after retirement but the former India opener turned down his request.

He feels Vira Kohli, Sehwag and R Ashwin can become good umpires as they are aware of the laws.
