Sarfraz Nawaz Malik born December 1, 1948, Lahore, Punjab) is a former Pakistani cricketer turned politician who was the founder of reverse swing in cricket and passed it onto later Pakistani bowlers.

He played in 55 Tests and 45 ODIs from 1969 to 1984.

His greatest bowling performance came in a Test match against Australia in 1979 in Melbourne when he took nine wickets in an innings. This included a remarkable spell of 33 deliveries in which he captured 7 wickets for 1 run.

In the very next match, Javed Miandad successfully appealed for handled the ball against Australian opener Andrew Hilditch - Hilditch was given out 'handled the ball.' The batsman picked up the ball returned from a fielder in rather a friendly way. An appeal was made and he was given out. In the same match fast bowler Hurst ran out Sikander, at the non-striker's end when he was backing up while the bowler had completed the delivery.

In the 1980s, Sarfraz married the film actress, Rani. In 1985, he contested successfully for membership of the Provincial Assembly of the Punjab and remained a member (MPA) for 3 years
