A member of the ICC International umpire panel, he made his umpiring debut in a One Day International (ODI) between Bangladesh and Kenya at Bogra in March 2006. His brother Jahangir Shah, played ODI cricket for Bangladesh.
In October 2012 he was caught in a TV sting operation appearing to agree to give decisions on demand for money as an umpire during the 2012 ICC World Twenty20. He has denied the allegations. In March 2013 he was banned for ten years by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB). In February 2016 the BCB lifted the ban on Shah and he is now eligible to umpire in domestic matches in Bangladesh.
