Umpire Douglas Sang Hue OD dies

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.
