David Shepherd Dies At The Age Of 68

David Shepherd Has Passed Away:
David Shepherd, former English Cricket Umpire has passed away at the age of 68 after a long battle with cancer. He was best known for his fair umpiring and quirky sense of humuor and most famously expressed in his superstitious habit of standing on one leg whenever the score reached 111. International Cricket Council has definitely recognized him when they appointed him for three successive World Cup finals.
David Shepherd
Overall, in his entire umpiring career, Shepherd stood in 92 Test matches and 172 one-day internationals, which only the Jamaican Steve Bucknor and the South African Rudi Koertzen have bettered and it is a rare feat. "The game isn't about us, It's about the players" , Shepherd used to say. David Robert Shepherd was born on December 27 1940 at Instow.

His Cricket Career:
By the time David Shepherd retired from the game in 1979, he had scored 12 centuries and 55 half-centuries in his 476 innings during 282 matches. In all, his right-hand batting had clocked up 10,672 runs. Shepherd had taken two first-class wickets with his medium pace bowling. In one-day international level, he marked his debut during the 1983 World Cup.

End of Umpiring Career:
In 2005 Shepherd was offered the opportunity to end his career with an Ashes Test at Lord's – a gesture that would have needed the approval of the ICC board, as only neutral umpires have stood in Tests since 2002. David Shepherd, who died on October 27, is survived by his wife. Surely he will be missed by the entire cricket fraternity.
