Pervez Sajjad Hasan (Urdu: پرویز سجاد حسن; born 30 August 1942, Lahore, Punjab) is a former Pakistani cricketer who played in nineteen Tests from 1964 to 1973. He joined the coveted club of the top ten bowlers of the world in his ninth test, a feat never achieved by any bowler from Pakistan before him.


He played 19 Tests for Pakistan as a cunning left-arm legspinner whose forte was that he was effective even on unhelpful tracks. In all, he took 59 economical wickets, including five wickets in an innings three times, always against New Zealand. At Auckland in 1964–65 he finished with 5 for 42. In the 1969–70 series, he took 22 wickets at only 15.63, including 5 for 33 at Karachi and his Test-best 7 for 74 at Lahore.[1]
