Kumar Dharmasena and Marais Erasmus will umpire the World Cup final at Lord's on Sunday while Ranjan Madugalle will be the match referee, it has been confirmed by the ICC.

Kumar Dharmasena and Marais Erasmus officiated in England's eight-wicket victory over Australia on Thursday at Edgbaston and will now oversee the tournament finale between England and New Zealand.

Dharmasena was involved in some considerable controversy during the game in Birmingham, with Jason Roy reacting angrily after being given out by the Sri Lankan official.

He was adjudged to have gloved a delivery from Pat Cummins through to Australia wicketkeeper Alex Carey, although replays suggested the Surrey batsman had missed the ball by some distance.

Roy then had to be ushered from the field by Erasmus, who was stood at square leg at the time. Roy had signalled for a review after being dismissed, before realising that his opening partner, Jonny Bairstow, had already unsuccessfully utilised England's solitary challenge.

He was subsequently fined 30 percent of his match fee and handed two demerit points for his response to the decision.

Australian Rod Tucker will be in the third umpire’s chair, while Pakistan’s Aleem Dar will be the fourth official.
