Piloo Reporter (24 September 1938 – 3 September 2023) was an Indian international cricket umpire.
He made his debut as an umpire in a domestic Ranji Trophy match at the age of 29. In 1984, he made his debut on the international stage as an umpire in both Test matches and one day internationals (ODI), standing in 14 Tests and 22 ODI’s until 1994.
Reporter was a Parsi and is known as “PD” in the cricketing fraternity. The method by which Reporter signalled a boundary had been called “Milkshake” by cricket commentator Henry Blofeld.
In 1986, Reporter and VK Ramaswamy became the first neutral umpires from India when they stood in a Test match featuring Pakistan and West Indies in Lahore. This was the first time neutral umpires had officiated in a Test since 1912. They were invited by the Pakistan captain, Imran Khan after allegations of bias by Pakistani umpires.
