During the Champions Trophy, South Africa hosted the ICC Annual Awards. While no Pakistani cricketer featured among the winners, it was ‘elite umpire’ Aleem Dar who brought glory to the country by being nominated the Umpire of the Year. He edged Simon Taufel, widely regarded as the best umpire in recent times. “Indeed it’s a great honour for Pakistan because what I’m today is because of the country I love and represent. I feel very proud to be a Pakistani at this moment. It’s a just reward for all the hard work put into the job,” the 41-year-old Aleem told Dawn in an interview fromJohannesburg. -Photo by AFP
