Gentlemen, It is indeed a sad day for the Jamaica Cricket Umpires’ Association (JCUA) and West Indies Cricket Umpires’ Association (WICUA) family. The passing of Douglas Sang-Hue
OD, former Test and International Umpire has left a huge void in our umpiring fraternity. Mr. Sang-Hue epitomized the true standard of excellence that every umpire would like to aspire for.He had been a true ambassador for Jamaica and the entire West Indies, representing us locally, regionally and internationally with distinction. We will surely miss him.
On behalf of the West Indies Cricket Umpires’ Association which he served with grace, humility and distinction, I would like to extend condolence to his family. May his soul rest in peace.Funeral arrangements will be announced later.
