Claire Polosak will go down in history books as the first female umpire to officiate a men’s ODI.

She will be the on-field umpire of the World Cricket League Division 2 final between Namibia and Oman.

“We go out there to umpire. Not to get a final appointment, but to be a part of a team, to be involved in the game,” she said in an interview. “It’s really to do with the partners you work with all the way through.”

“Right from my local association – NSW umpires and scorers – as well as parents and my partner, Evans, my husband, without whose support there’s no way I’d be here today.”

Polosak became the first on-field female umpire to call a men’s domestic game in Australia back in 2017.

She also became the first woman to officiate in the final of an ICC T20 Women’s World Cup last year.
