India is moving ahead towards nominating for the first rank in Test Cricket Team. Cricket is highly watched game in India and highly paid job also. So its normal that you will love to become either cricketer or umpire.
Anyone can become an umpire and the best starting point would be to acquire a reasonable working knowledge of the rules of Cricket. If you are looking for umpiring at a national level, then you need to have a minimum of five years experience as a national player, or you need to have an experience as an umpire for two years in club level matches.
In India each district or state has an umpiring association under the district or state cricket board. Go there and enroll your self for the training and membership. Once you get membership to the association, you need to attend the umpire courses and selection tests as per the BCCI announcements. Once you become an elite umpire, then you will get chance to do umpiring in the domestic circuit and when you are recommended by BCCI to ICC, then you can become an international umpire.
You can get in touch with Mumbai Cricket Association - Cricket Centre at Wankhede Stadium or check website for more details.
