Former Pakistan umpire Asad Rauf no more

Former ICC umpire Asad Rauf who officiated in 231 international matches in his 13-year career died of a cardiac arrest in Lahore.

He was 66. Rauf began umpiring in 2000 and was promoted to ICC’s elite panel in 2006. One of Pakistan’s most prominent umpires, Rauf’s career came to an abrupt halt in 2013 when his name landed in the IPL spot-fixing scandal.

He was dropped from ICC’s elite panel. Rauf was in the news until earlier this year, when a video of him selling shoes at Pakistan’s famous Landa Bazaar went viral.
