Mysuru: Australian umpire Sam Nogajski yesterday discontinued officiating in a Ranji Trophy match between Uttar Pradesh and Mumbai, as he was hospitalized for dehydration with his Indian counterpart Virender Sharma doing duty from both ends.

The Aussie umpire complained of stomach ache and vomiting before the start of the second day's play here and was admitted to a local hospital as a precautionary measure. "The umpire has been admitted in a local hospital at 7am after he complained of loose motion and stomach ache. The doctors attending him said it is a case of dehydration," KSCA Mysuru Convener Balachandra said.

Earlier, KSCA officials were optimistic of Nogajski making a comeback post-lunch session, but a report issued by the hospital authorities suggested complete rest. "It means he will not officiate in the match any further," Balachandra said. The doctors have advised Nogajski to visit Bengaluru for treatment, he added.
