Arshad Khan (Urdu: ارشد خان) (born March 22, 1971 in Peshawar) is a Pakistani cricketer. He is a right-handed batsman and a right-arm off break bowler.

Arshad was first picked to play against the West Indies during the 1997-98 season, and the following year, was part of the team which won the Asian Test Championship at Dhaka against Sri Lanka. He was a regular inclusion in the Pakistani side until 2001, at which point the selectors dropped him and he went back to domestic cricket.

Four years later, a strong performance in the Pakistani domestic championship meant that Arshad earned a recall for Pakistan's 2005 tour of India. He performed credibly, particularly in the Bangalore Test, which Pakistan won in the last session to draw the series.

He toured the Caribbean in May 2005, and has retained his place for the upcoming England series.

During the 2005 One Day International series against England, Arshad was used in the second and fifth matches and proved effective at repressing the England batsmen, allowing very few runs to be scored off him and also taking wickets. During the fifth match, his economy was just over 3 runs per over - a very good figure for any bowler, especially a spinner.

A tall man at 6'4, Arshad bowls in a classical off-spinner's mould, preferring a nagging line to any great variation. Picked under a "horses for courses" policy, he has failed to establish himself as a permanent member of the Pakistani team.
