Khan Mohammad (1 January 1928 – 4 July 2009) was a cricket player who was a member of Pakistan's first Test team that played against India in 1952. Born in Lahore, Punjab, he was educated at the city's Islamia College. He played in 13 Tests as an opening bowler who shared the new ball with Fazal Mahmood. He also holds the distinction of bowling Pakistan's first ball and taking Pakistan's first wicket in Test cricket.
In 1951, Khan Mohammad made one appearance for Somerset, playing against the South Africans. He took five wickets in the match, and the intention appears to have been for him to qualify for the county by residence, which would have taken three years by the then rules, but he returned to Pakistan when Test cricket started there 18 months later. He chose country over county, as his newly founded nation desperately needed experienced cricketers.
