Saeed Ahmed (born October 1, 1937, Jalandhar, British India) is a former Pakistani cricketer who played in 41 Tests from 1958 to 1972. He was a right-handed middle order batsman with a powerful drive and also a handy right arm offbreak bowler. He is the half brother of Younis Ahmed.
He made his Test début on 17 January 1958 against the West Indies at Bridgetown. He made 65 in the second innings, at one stage partnering Hanif Mohammad who went on to make 337. Saeed finished the series with 508 runs. Saeed went on to captain his side in three drawn Tests in 1968–69. His career ended in controversial circumstances when he declared himself unfit for the 3rd Test against Australia due to what he claimed was a back injury. In the previous Test he had been involved in a heated altercation with Dennis Lillee and thus the Pakistan management was sceptical about his injury. As a result they sent him home for 'indiscipline'. He finished his career with five Test hundreds, in three of them he made over 150.
