According to media reports, Rauf suffered a heart attack shortly after returning from his shop in Lahore on Wednesday. Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) president Rameez Raja tweeted: “Very sad to hear about Asad Rauf’s demise. He was not only a good umpire but also had a touch of humour. He would always put a smile on my face and he would do so when I remembered him. My sympathies to his family.” Rauf played 71 first-class matches for the National Bank of Pakistan and Railways and later became an umpire.

Along with Aleem Dar, he was one of the leading judges in Pakistan. However, his career ended in 2013 when the Mumbai police framed him for IPL spot-fixing. Then Rauf stood for this tournament. He then left the IPL midway and left India and later withdrew from the Champions Trophy as well. He was then dropped from the ICC Elite Panel. In 2016, the Indian Cricket Board imposed a five-year ban on him for corruption and misconduct.
