Marais Erasmus, (born 27 February 1964, Cape Province), is a former South African cricketer who currently serves as an international cricket umpire. He is a member of the ICC Elite Umpire Panel.

Playing career

He played for the Boland cricket team at first-class level from 1988-89 to 1996-97 as a fast-medium bowler and useful lower-order batsman. His highest score was 103 not out (after 51 not out in the first innings) batting at number seven against the visiting Warwickshire team in 1991-92.[1] His best bowling figures were 6 for 22 against the touring New Zealand cricket team in 1994-95, in a match that had to be abandoned early on the second day because of the dangerous pitch at Boland Bank Park.[2]

Umpiring career

He began umpiring in first-class cricket in South Africa in 2002-03. His first ODI match was between Kenya and Canada at Nairobi on 18 October 2007 and his first T20I match was between South Africa and Australia at Johannesburg on 24 February 2006. His first Test match was between Bangladesh and India from 17–21 January 2010.

Erasmus was appointed to the ICC International Panel of Umpires in 2008 and was quickly promoted to the ICC Elite Umpire Panel in 2010. [3]
