Nadir Shah (born 7 February 1964) is an international cricket umpire from Bangladesh. 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.[1] In March 2013 he was banned for ten years by the Bangladesh Cricket Board (BCB).[2] In February 2016 the BCB lifted the ban on Shah and he is now eligible to umpire in domestic matches in Bangladesh.[3]
