Shahid Nazir (Urdu: شاہد نذیر) (born 4 December 1977, Faisalabad, Punjab) is a Pakistani cricketer.

He made his Test debut for Pakistan against Zimbabwe at Sheikhupura in 1996, and immediately received much criticism from the spectators whose local favourite Aaqib Javed he was thought to have replaced. However, the crowd soon got behind him as he took 5 wickets in the first innings.[1] He played in a number of Test matches for Pakistan over the next 3 years, but appearances became more intermittent and he was dropped in 1999.

Shahid Nazir made a return to the national team on 8 June 2006 when he was officially added to the Pakistani squad for their tour of England after an injury to Shoaib Akhtar.[2]

In 2008, he signed with the Indian Cricket League and played for the Lahore Badshahs. Shahid Nazir has not played international cricket since January 2007.[3]
