Asad Rauf was a right-hand batsman who enjoyed a solid if unspectacular career in the 1980s, which his best season coming in 1986-87 when he made 672 runs at 35.36, including one hundred and five fifties. But he lost form the following season and played little first-class cricket thereafter. His career as an umpire really started in 1998 when he made his first-class debut, and in 2000 he stood in his first ODI. He was elevated to the ODI panel in 2004 and officiated in his first Test the following year. In April 2006 he was appointed to the ICC Elite Panel.
