Member of the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, Aleem Dar has been a great source of pride for the nation of Pakistan for his astounding ability to adjudge on-field decisions correct most of the time. Possessing a success rate far superior than his fellow umpires, Dar has been an eminent servant for Pakistan cricket, receiving immense accolades throughout his glorious career.
With a career spanning almost 2 decades, the 50-year-old is now close to breaking the world record for standing in the most number of international matches. His longevity and impressive record affords him a special status among the greatest umpires that the sport has ever seen.
“Thanks to Allah I have 3 Test matches remaining and 9 ODIs left to create a world record. I want to create a name for umpiring in Pakistan. I am going to my 5th World Cup which is a very big thing for me,” Dar recently spoke in an interview.
