After Semi Final, ICC did not appoint Aleem Dar to take the courtesy of umpiring in the final of the Mega Event.
He lost his all-important place due to the two wrong decisions given by him in the ongoing
In the Quarter Final between India and Bangladesh, the Pakistani umpire gave “No ball” which Bangladesh think that it was valid ball. Star batsman of the match Rohit Sharma got out in that ball, but umpire gave that a “No ball” thinking that it is above the waist height.
President of ICC, Mustafa Kamal criticized that decision of Aleem Dar. However, ICC defended the Aleem Dar and other umpire of the match Ian Gould in the successful manner.
Aleem Dar also remained in the headlines when he gave English batsman James Taylor out (as LBW) during the match played between England and Australia. Taylor took the review against the decision, meanwhile Taylor and Anderson run to score single and Australian fielder Glenn Maxwell appealed the umpire for the run out of Anderson. Leg umpire Dharmasena declared him out while Aleem Dar’s decision of LBW was turned around.
This was very interesting situation because according to rules and regulations of Cricket that ball should have been declared as dead ball. Because when Aleem Dar gave Taylor LBW, then there was no room to run for runs and got out by any other way.
ICC admitted the falult of the umpire after the match.
Aleem Dar has done umpiring in the World cup finals of 2007 and 2011. But in the final of Cricket world Cup 2007 he came under much criticism by the fellow umpires on continuing the match in the dim light.
After this final of 2007, he was not included in the umpire panel of T20 world cup 2007.
The 46 years old, Aleem Dar, has been in umpire panel of ICC since 2002. He won the award of ICC umpire of the year for the three consecutive times in 2009, 2010 and 2011.
