Riaz Afridi (Urdu: ریاض آفریدی) (born 21 January 1985 in Peshawar) is a Pakistani cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm medium-fast bowler.[1]

Afridi has played one Test match, for the Pakistan national cricket team against the Sri Lanka national cricket team. It was the same match which saw Naved-ul-Hasan make his Test debut.[2]

Riaz is a cousin of Pakistani footballer Yasir Afridi. In 2007 Riaz signed a contract with the Indian Cricket League (ICL) and represented the Lahore Badshahs, which put Riaz's future as a Pakistani Test player at risk. During the summer months Riaz plays for Great Ayton CC in the NYSD league in the north east of England where he has helped them win the league and consistently finished top wicket taker in the league with his fast swing bowling and big hitting.[citation needed]
