Syed Asif Masood Shah (born January 23, 1946, Lahore, Punjab) is a former Pakistani cricketer who played in 16 Tests and 7 ODIs from 1969 to 1977. Usually known as "Asif Masood", he was educated at Islamia College.
His best Test was against England at Birmingham in 1971, when he took 5 for 111 and 4 for 49. This performance led to his selection for the Rest of the World team in Australia in 1971-72.
He used to begin his run-up with a backward step before a loping approach to the wicket which John Arlott likened to "Groucho Marx chasing a pretty waitress".
Retiring from cricket in 1977, after marrying in the UK, Asif Masood became a successful businessman, owning first a travel agency then a post office in Bury, Lancashire. He currently resides in Bury with his wife and four children.
