Aftab Ahmed (date of birth unknown) was an Indian cricketer who played a single match for Jammu and Kashmir during the 1985–86 season. Aftab's only recorded match at first-class level came during that season's edition of the Ranji Trophy.[1] In the match, played against Punjab in September 1985 at the Sher-i-Kashmir, Srinagar, he failed to take a wicket in Punjab's first innings while opening the bowling with Nissar Khanday, but took two wickets in the second innings, finishing with 2/32 after dismissing Gurinder Singh and Navjot Sindhu, a former Indian international. Aftab batted last in both innings, remaining not out in each, although Punjab went on to win the match by eight wickets.[2] Other bowlers were favoured for the remainder of the season, and he played no further matches for the team at first-class level.[3]
