Former ICC elite panel umpire Asad Rauf was a controversial figure during the last phase of his umpiring career. He is currently running a shop at Landa Bazaar in Lahore. The 66-year-old was accused of match-fixing during the Indian Premier League in 2013.
Speaking to Cricket Pakistan, he slammed the BCCI for sleeping for three years and suddenly opened up an inquiry in 2016, which he termed a forced one.
“They failed to prove any allegations against me. They slept for three years and suddenly started a forced investigation in 2016. I still have the judge’s verdict, which says no proof was provided.”
The former umpire said he had planned his resignation after 2013 and informed the ICC. Rauf further revealed that the ICC never approached him regarding the false charges from the BCCI.
Other than his shop, Asad also owns an iron and metal business. He umpired in 49 Tests, 98 ODIs, 23 T20Is, and eight women’s T20Is.
