Syed Asghar Ali (11 June 1924 – 19 April 1979) was a cricketer who played first-class cricket in India from 1943 to 1949, and in Pakistan from 1949 to 1957.

A middle-order batsman, Asghar Ali's highest score was 103 not out in a team total of 182 for Hyderabad against Central Provinces and Berar in the 1947–48 Ranji Trophy. Nobody else in the match reached 50.[1]

He played for Pakistan in two matches against the touring Ceylon team in 1949–50.[2] He was named as a substitute for the Pakistan team that toured India in 1952–53, and was brought over to India at one stage, but did not play.[3]
