The International Cricket Council has dropped Wasim Raja from its panel of elite match referees while increasing numbers from five to eight.

Australian Alan Hurst, Chris Broad of England, New Zealander Jeff Crowe, and the Sri Lankan Roshan Mahanama have all been added to the list.

They join chief referee Ranjan Madugalle, Gundappa Viswanath, Clive Lloyd and Mike Procter on the Panel.

All eight have experience of playing Test cricket for their country.

ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed, said: "Expanding the panel to eight gives us a deeper pool of former international players with a strong feel for the game who will be able to apply their knowledge when making judgments about on-field events.
