Sajjad Ahmed (born 14 February 1932) is a former cricketer who played first-class cricket in Pakistan from 1953 to 1968.

A medium-pace bowler, Sajjad Ahmed had a modest career except for two outstanding performances for Peshawar in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy at the Peshawar Club Ground. In 1956–57, opening the bowling, he took 7 for 38 and 6 for 51 against Bahawalpur, yet Peshawar still lost by 144 runs.[1] In 1958–59, again opening the bowling, he took 2 for 50 and 9 for 80 against Combined Services, but Peshawar lost by 185 runs.[2] He was the third bowler to take nine wickets in an innings in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy, after Fazal Mahmood and Israr Ali. He was selected in a President's XI against the touring West Indians later in 1958–59 in a match at the Peshawar Club Ground, but was given only three overs.[3]
