Syed Khalid Wazir (born April 27, 1936 in Jalandhar, Punjab, India) is a former Pakistani cricketer who played in 2 Tests in 1954.[1]

He was selected for the 1954 tour of England after just two first-class matches in which he had made 18 runs and taken 5 wickets. In 16 first-class matches on the tour he made 253 runs at 16.86 as a middle-order batsman and took 9 wickets at 54.90.[2] He played in the First and Third Tests, batting in the lower order and not bowling. He played no more first-class cricket after the tour, and is thus the only Test cricketer whose first-class career ended before he turned 19.

He played one match as a professional for East Lancashire in the Lancashire League in 1957, taking 5 for 57.[3]

His father Wazir Ali played Test cricket for India in the 1930s.
