Aleem Dar, a legendary Pakistani umpire, resigned from the elite panel of the International Cricket Council (ICC) after nearly 19 years of service. Aleem Dar holds the record for most Test matches officiated (144), most ODI matches officiated (222), and most overall matches officiated (435). ICC added Ahsan Raza in the first class board in his place, who holds the record for administering most T20 world matches (72). Aleem Dar won the ICC Best Umpire of the year for three successive years, in 2009, 2010 and 2011. PCB Chairman Najam Sethi wished the legendary umpire, who made his debut in an ODI match between Sri Lanka and Pakistan in 2000, a successful career. Najam Sethi also said that Pakistani umpires were doing a great job of umpiring and congratulated Ahsan Raza for being added to the elite panel of the International Cricket Council.
