FIJIAN umpire Mervyn Nabuka impressed officials during his recent stint officiating at the Imparja Cup in Alice Springs which is Cricket Australia's national tournament for indigenous cricketers.

Tournament's managing umpire, Mark Hanton spoke highly of Nabuka and said he was a most competed umpire.

"He (Nabuka) appeared to be in control of the game and was not intimidated by some rather vigorous appealing," Hanton said.

"My views were supported by the captains and (team) managers who I spoke to both during and after his (Nabuka) matches.

"In terms of his positioning, knowledge of playing conditions and decision making, he could not be faulted over the course of the week."

During his time in Central Australia, Nabuka umpired two State and Territory matches from the men's fixture early in the competition and then the women's draw, where both he and Helen Atai from Papua New Guinea were selected to umpire the women's final.
