ICC’s regulations require the inclusion of neutral umpires in ICC events. Over the last 12 years, England and India have faced each other only once in an ICC knockout match. For IND vs AUS Cricket World Cup 2023 Final, ICC picking Illingworth (England) and Kettleborough (England), both from England and ICC elite panel officials, aligns with this requirement. The pair of Illingworth and Kettleborough, winners of the ICC David Shepherd Trophy for Umpire of the Year, have been the most common umpires during India matches.
