Iftikhar Ahmed (born 3 September 1990) is a Pakistani cricketer.[1] He was the top-scorer for Pakistan A in their two-day match against England in October 2015.[2] He made his One Day International debut on 13 November 2015 during the same tour.[3] He made his Test debut against England on 11 August 2016.[4]

He was initially selected in Pakistan's squad for the 2016 ICC World Twenty20 tournament, but he was later dropped due to poor form.[5] However, he made his Twenty20 International debut for Pakistan against Sri Lanka in the 2016 Asia Cup on 4 March 2016.[6]

On 27 January 2017, he made 131 not out and took 3 wickets for 12 runs in the final of the 2016–17 Regional One Day Cup. He was jointly named man of the match along with Gauhar Ali.[7][8]
