Former ICC Elite Panel Umpire Asad Rauf Now Runs a Shop in Landa Bazar

At the pinnacle of his umpiring career, Asad Rauf of Pakistan was counted among the best in the world. That he was part of ICC Elite Panel was a proof of his talent.

The accusations of sexual exploitation by a model in 2012 had already tarnished his reputation but the 66-year-old has now retired to a quiet life and now owns a shop selling clothes and shoes in Lahore’s Landa Bazar.

However, after being alleged of being involved in corrupt practices during IPL 2013 and a subsequent ban by the BCCI, Rauf’s career took a nosedive and in his own words, he has completely lost touch with cricket since then.
