He already holds the record for officiating in the most international matches (387) and 132 test matches.

In a statement released by ICC, he said, "It is a matter of great honour for me to be on the top of the list of both Tests and ODIs for umpires. When I had started out in the profession, I had never imagined I would get this far. I can only say that I have enjoyed every moment on the field and learning has been an ongoing process all this while."

PCB congratulates Aleem Dar to set the world record.

He has also been a part of the ICC's elite panel of umpires for 16 years.
