Aftab Ahmed (date of birth unknown) was a Pakistani cricketer who played a single match for Sind University during the 1958–59 season. Aftab's only recorded match at first-class level came during that season's edition of the Inter-Universities Championship, contested between a number of Pakistani universities.[1] In the match, played against Punjab University in January 1959 at the Bohra Gymkhana Ground, Karachi, Punjab University amassed a total of 702 all out, an innings which included four centuries.
