Assad Raouf dies of cardiac arrest: ICC ruling he was working in a shoe store in his last days

Asad Rauf, former Imperial Pakistani, has been extradited on suspicion of cardiac arrest in Lahore. He breathed his end at the age of 66. He was certainly one of the most distinguished rulers of Pakistan in the mid-2000s, as well as being promoted to the Elite Council of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 2006.

Along Together with Alim Dar, Rauf's emergence gave an entirely new identity to the Pakistan Governing Committee and boosted its fame, which for years had been let down by its poor requirements. Aside from his skilful life, he was also a kind man who put a smile on his face at all times.

Asad Rauf Umpiring Profession

Rauf turned first-class referee in 1998 and in February 2000 he was appointed by the Pakistan Cricket Board in his first match on the day One at the world level, which was a match between Pakistan and Sri Lanka.

In 2004, it was included in the Global Referees Panel for the first time and in 2006, it was included in the ICC Elite Panel of Referees. In his world career, he has managed 64 checks (49 as a field referee while 15 as a television referee), 139 ODIs and 28 T20s.

At a young age, between 1977 to 1991, Rauf performed in the home cricket in Pakistan, representing the Universities of Pakistan, Lahore, National Financial Corporation of Pakistan and Pakistan Railways. After Rauf's title reached the 2013 IPL placement controversy, the ICC immediately responded by withdrawing him from the Match Officers Committee for the 2013 Champions Cup.

He was indicted by Mumbai Police in September 2013 in a Mumbai courtroom with Illegal, dishonest and fraudulent betting. Rauf denied all the allegations against him but refused to go to Mumbai to face the costs. His liability was discovered and he was banned for 5 years in February 2016. A hit in cricket, he decided to finally retire from all kinds of refereeing this year. Raouf was working in a shoe store in the Landa Bazaar space in Lahore during his last moments after his retirement from government. This was his main source of livelihood after his retirement from government. Tribute to Raouf on his death.
