Mansoor Amjad (born 14 December 1987) is a Pakistani cricket player. Despite his young age he has already played for the Pakistan A cricket team.

He was an important member for the Under-19 2004 World Cup when they won it. Bob Woolmer, former Pakistan coach, praised him when he took five wickets against the England XI at Lahore in 2005–2006.[1] Mansoor Amjad is a right-handed wrist spinner who took five wickets against an England XI at Lahore in 2005–06. He is also a more than capable[clarification needed] middle order batsman and has already[when?] hit two hundreds at such a young age.

In 2006 he was signed as Leicestershire as a replacement overseas player for Dinesh Mongia.

It was recently[when?] announced that Mansoor would be spending the whole of the 2007 season at Leicestershire as their permanent overseas player. He hit his maiden century for the club against Glamorgan but has otherwise failed to impress for the club, his bowling especially being a disappointment.[according to whom?]

He played his only T20I in April 2008, against Bangladesh in Karachi. Amjad was asked to bowl the sixteenth over, and he took wickets on his second, fifth and sixth ball. He took 3 wickets, with an overall number of 1-0-3-3. He never played another T20I for Pakistan.

In June the same year, he made his first and only ODI appearance in the Asia Cup. He took 1 wicket and conceding 44 runs in his allotted 10 overs against Sri Lanka. He has never yet played a Test match.[2]
