Cricket: First Woman Referee in Men’s International Competition!

By Prof Dr Ian Blackshaw

Another milestone has been reached for women in traditionally male-dominated sports!

Sue Redfern has been appointed, on 22 June 2021, by the England and Wales Cricket Board as a referee (umpire) in the men’s international T20 match between England and Sri Lanka in Cardiff, Wales, on 23 June 2021.

Redfern, who is 43 years old, has represented England as a cricketer on 21 occasions – 6 times in Test Matches and 15 times in one-day internationals between 1995 and 1999.

She has also acted, to date, as an umpire in 32 women’s internationals, as well as a further 12 as a TV umpire.

So, she is well qualified for this latest challenge in her professional cricketing career, and it will be interesting to see how she gets on with the men!
