And to earn his bread these days, Rauf is currently running two shops in Lahore, one that sells second-hand apparel with the other selling crockery.

Despite such a drastic change in his life in the past decade, the 66-year-old Rauf is passionate about his new business and doesn't miss the game anymore.

Rauf told a Pakistani news channel that because he has umpired in so many games in the past, there is nothing left for him to see.

Notably, the BCCI banned Rauf from officiating IPL matches for five years in 2016, bringing curtains down on his career. In his 13 years as an international umpire, Rauf officiated in 49 Tests, 98 ODIs, and 23 T20Is.
