Zulfiqar Ahmed (born 22 November 1926 – 3 October 2008[1]) was a Pakistani cricketer who played in nine Test matches from 1952 to 1956. He was educated at Islamia College, Lahore.


He was primarily an off-spin bowler, but was also a very useful late-order batsman. His finest hour was when he took 11 for 79 in the match in a Test against New Zealand in Karachi in 1955.[2]

His sister, Shahzadi, married Abdul Hafeez Kardar, Pakistan's first Test cricket captain.[3]
