Aleem Dar equals record for most Test matches
August 16, 2019

Pakistan's international umpire Aleem Dar has equaled the record of officiating in the highest number of Test matches.

The  umpire  leveled with West Indian umpire Steve Bucknor’s record of officiating in the most Test matches after taking the field for the 128th time during the second Ashes Test between England and Australia at Lord’s.

Dar made his Test debut in a match between Bangladesh and England in Dhaka in October 2003. He has since then taken charge of 376 matches across all formats.

The Pakistan Cricket Board has congratulated Aleem Dar for achieving this landmark.
