The International Cricket Council (ICC) has honoured umpire Aleem Dar for becoming only the seventh umpire in cricketing history to officiate in 150 ODIs.

Dar, who is from Pakistan, completed his amazing milestone in the first ODI between Australia and England at Lord’s.

Dar, currently 4o-years-old, made his umpiring debut back in 2000, and during his 12 years as an umpire he has won the David Shepherd trophy three times.

The 40-year-old has an excellent reputation throughout the cricketing world for his outstanding officiating and decisions during matches.

In 2002, Dar was promoted to the Emirates Elite Panel of ICC Umpires, and since then, he has umpired the 2007 and 2011 finals of the ICC Cricket World Cup.

During the post-match presentations at his 150th ODI, Dar was presented with a memento by former India pace bowler Javagal Srinath.
