Video of Simon Taufel's lecture delivered at the Marylebourne Cricket Club's (MCC) Spirit of Cricket Cowdrey Lecture 2013.

In this video Taufel expresses his aim to get accreditation to umpires within two years. He wants to see that every international umpire to maintain a consistent standard of umpiring across all countries. He says such a system would allow umpires to rise and bring the quality of umpiring at par.

The quality of officiating in matches should start improving right from the grass-root level and that's what Taufel said his aim would be.
