Amjad Ali (Urdu: امجد علی‎; born 25 September 1979) is a United Arab Emirates cricketer.[1] A left-handed batsman, right-arm medium pace bowler and wicket-keeper, he made his One Day International (ODI) debut for the United Arab Emirates national cricket team in 2008.[2] He previously played first-class cricket for Lahore Blues in Pakistan, and has also played first-class cricket for the UAE in the ICC Intercontinental Cup.[3]


Born in Lahore in 1979,[2] Chaudhry first played for the Lahore Blues in the Quaid-e-Azam Trophy in 2002. He played twice that season, and once more in 2003, ending his first-class career in Pakistan,[3] though he did play in a minor tournament for Lahore East Zone Blues later in 2003.[4]

He first played for the UAE in an 2007–08 ICC Intercontinental Cup match against Namibia in January 2008, and has gone on to play three more matches in that tournament.[3] He played two ODIs for his adopted country in the 2008 Asia Cup[5] and most recently represented them in the 2008 ACC Trophy Elite tournament.[4]
