An Indian became the first woman to be appointed to the international panel of cricket match referees. International Cricket Council (ICC) says in a statement GS Lakshmi "will be eligible to referee international games with immediate effect."
This month, Claire Polosak became the first female umpire to officiate in a men's ODI.
"We are committed to ensuring greater gender parity among our officials, but all appointments are made purely on merit," Adrian Griffith, the ICC senior manager for umpires and referees, said.
"It is pleasing that through consistent high performance we are able to add more women to our panels."
Eloise Sheridan joined Australian compatriot Polosak on the ICC development panel of umpires, which consists now of eight women members.
Lauren Agenbag, Kim Cotton, Shivani Mishra, Sue Redfern, Mary Waldron and Jacqueline Williams are the other women officials. "To be selected in the international panel by the ICC is a huge honour for me as it opens up new avenues," Lakshmi said.
