Harold Dennis "Dickie" Bird, OBE (born 19 April 1933) is an English retired international cricket umpire. During his long umpiring career, he became a much-loved figure among players and viewing public, due to his excellence as an umpire, but also his many eccentricities.
Bird played first-class cricket for Yorkshire and Leicestershire as a right-handed batsman, but only scored two centuries in 93 appearances. His career was blighted by a knee injury, which eventually caused him to retire aged 31. He umpired in 66 Test matches (at the time a world record) and 69 One Day Internationals including 3 World Cup Finals.
In February 2014, Yorkshire announced that Bird was to be voted in as the club's president at their Annual General Meeting on 29 March. His autobiography sold more than a million copies.
