Australian cricket umpire Simon Taufel is standing in his 150th one day international this morning, taking charge of the West Indies versus Zimbabwe match in Kingstown.

The 39-year-old made his international debut in 1999 and since then has gone on to become one of the game's most respected officials.

Taufel has been a member of the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires for seven years, also umpiring 61 test matches.
