Imtiaz Ahmed (Urdu: امتیاز احمد‎), (born 5 January 1928) played for the Pakistan's first Test team in 1952.

Born in Lahore, he was educated at Islamia College (Lahore). He played in 41 Tests and scored over 2000 runs. He was a middle order batsman who also sometimes batted in the top order. He was Pakistan's first Test wicketkeeper. He made the first Test double hundred by a wicketkeeper when he scored 209 against New Zealand in October 1955.

On 6 March 1951, playing for India Prime Minister's XI against a Commonwealth XI, Ahmed scored a triple century (300 not out) while following on, a feat that has been achieved by only two others.[1]

He also played in the Ranji Trophy.
