Rudi Koertzen, the former South African umpire who was part of the ICC's elite panel, has died aged 73. It is understood he died in a car accident while driving from Cape Town to Despatch in Eastern Cape in South Africa, where he lived with his family.

Koertzen officiated in 331 international matches, a record at the time of his retirement in 2010 - Pakistan's Aleem Dar has since gone past Koertzen. Along with Dar and West Indies' Steve Bucknor, Koertzen was one of only three umpires to stand in over 100 Tests.

Rudi , Simon Taufel , Steve Buckner, Aleem Dar , billy bowden all of these were renowned name for 90s kid for their great skill with sense of humor and some for very bad umpiring especially buckner with sachin
