London - England may have bowed out of the Cricket World Cup but they had plenty of representation among the list of match officials announced on Monday for this week's quarter-finals.

Umpires Richard Illingworth, a member of the England side that lost to Pakistan in the 1992 World Cup final in Melbourne, Ian Gould (England's wicketkeeper at the 1983 World Cup), Richard Kettleborough and Nigel Llong will all have roles in the last eight.

Meanwhile, former England batsman Chris Broad, whose son Stuart was in England's World Cup squad, will be the match referee for the fourth quarter-final between New Zealand and the West Indies in Wellington on Saturday.

Australia's leading officials also had quarter-final posts, with umpires Rod Tucker, Bruce Oxenford, Steve Davis and former Test batsman turned match referee David Boon all involved.

Officials for the semi-finals and March 29 final in Melbourne will be announced in due course.
