Mohammad Iqbal Qasim (born August 6, 1953, Karachi, Sind) is a former Pakistani cricketer who played in 50 Tests and 15 ODIs from 1976 to 1988.

Qasim ended his career with 171 wickets in his 50 Test matches, at approximately 3.5 wickets a match. His accurate bowling saw his economy rate at a low 2.21. He pushed the ball through quicker then normal, not extracting great turn, but deceiving batsmen through variations in pace and trajectory.

He is most notable for spinning Pakistan to victory in the 5th Test at Bangalore of the 1987 India-Pakistan series, and thus securing Pakistan's first series win on Indian soil. He took 9/121, including the key scalp of Sunil Gavaskar for 96 in the last innings of the game.

Iqbal Qasim remained in the shadows of his team-mate, leg spinner Abdul Qadir, although his career returns are superior by average and very similar by strike rate.

Iqbal Qasim has also been acclaimed by several Memon magazine monthlies as being the only successful Memon sportsman; one editorial (Memon Jamaat Pakistan magazine, December 1987) was sufficiently moved to paraphrase Harold Pinter to describe the joys of watching Iqbal Qasim bowl.
