KARACHI: Australia’s David Boon has been appointed by the International Cricket Council (ICC) as match referee for the Pakistan’s home series against Sri Lanka to be played in Karachi and Lahore from September 27 to October 9.

Boon, 58, played 107 Tests and 181 ODIs for Australia from 1984 to 1996 and has been on the ICC Elite Panel of Match Referees since 2011. As an ICC official, he has refereed in 135 ODIs and 51 T20Is.
