Arshad Khan is a former Pakistani cricketer. He was a right arm off-break bowler and a right-handed batsman with the Pakistan cricket team.
He has also played for the Islamabad Cricket Association, Allied Bank, ICL Pakistan XI, Peshawar Cricket Association, Pakistan Railways, and the Lahore Badshahs. He is currently the bowling coach of the Pakistan women’s cricket team.
Arshad Khan debuted in first class cricket since 1988. He made his debut in international cricket in a One-Day International match in 1993 against Zimbabwe, but rose to importance with his Test debut in 1997 against the West Indies.
He was part of the Pakistan team that triumphed at the 1998 Asian Test Championship, taking 5-38 in the final as Pakistan beat Sri Lanka. He was unable to secure his spot in the Test side, coming in and out until 2001. He was overlooked for several years, before a recall in 2005, but only added one further Test.
Arshad bowled a nagging line and restricted opposition batsman so his career statistics were far from amazing, playing nine Tests for 32 wickets at an average of 30.00. He took 56 wickets in 50 ODIs at an average of 34.78.
He led Peshawar Panthers to victory in the ABN-AMRO Cup Gold League in 2007 and joined the short-lived unsanctioned Indian Cricket League in 2008.
