29 is the number of World T20 matches that Aleem Dar of Pakistan and Simon Taufel of Australia have officiated as umpires.
Umpiring has always been a thankless job in cricket. There have been few umpires who have made a name for themselves in the international circuit. David Shepherd has been one of the most respected umpires in international cricket, appearing in a record 264 international matches. Aleem Dar and Simon Taufel have also made a mark in international cricket with their accurate and controversy-free umpiring.
Aleem Dar and Simon Taufel have been a regular feature in World T20s. They have appeared in a record 29 matches in World T20s. Taufel retired from the ICC’s elite panel in 2012.
