The three ODIs will be shared between Steve Davis, Daryl Harper and Mark Benson.

Immediately after the conclusion of the ongoing series against Australia, India will face England in seven ODIs and two Tests. Roshan Mahanama of the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Match Referees will oversee the ODI series and the first three matches will be officiated by Russell Tiffin of the Emirates International Panel of ICC Umpires along with local Board of Control for Cricket in India appointments. Harper will stand in the last four ODIs along with local appointments.

Mahanama will hand over to Jeff Crowe for the Ahmedabad and Mumbai Tests, to be umpired by Asad Rauf and Harper. * Agencies
