Aleem Dar becomes first umpire to officiate 400 international matches

LAHORE – Pakistani umpire Aleem Dar has set new record of officiating 400 international matches.

The 52-year-old achieved the feat on Saturday in the T20I match between Afghanistan and Zimbabwe at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi. The Pakistan Cricket Board congratulated Dar on setting the new world record.

“Congratulations to umpire Aleem Dar, who is standing in his 400th men's international game today Party popper. What an achievement!” tweeted ICC congratulating the Pakistani umpire.

It has been more than 20 years since Aleem Dar made his debut as an international umpire in an ODI between Pakistan and Sri Lanka – after playing 17 first-class and 18 List-A matches as a leg-spinner in the 1980s and 90s. He is the first umpire from Pakistan in the Elite Panel of ICC Umpires.
