Sarfraz Nawaz Malik (Punjabi, Urdu: سرفراز نواز ملک‎) (born 1 December 1948, Lahore, Punjab) is a former Pakistani Test cricketer and politician who discovered reverse swing and was instrumental in Pakistan's first Test series victories over India and England. Between 1969 and 1984 he played 55 Tests and 45 One Day Internationals and took 177 Test wickets at an average of 32.75. In 1978–79 he took 9/86 against Australia at Melbourne – including a spell of 7/1 off 33 balls – to give Pakistan a surprise victory, but in the next Test at Perth Sarfraz controversially dismissed the Australian batsman Andrew Hilditch for handling the ball.
