Khalid Aziz (15 July 1937 – 2 July 2011) was a Pakistani cricket umpire. He stood in three Test matches between 1978 and 1992 and seven ODI games between 1977 and 1993.[1]

During the West Indian tour of Pakistan in 1980–81 he protested publicly against the pressure officials put on umpires to make decisions in favour of the home team, and was sacked.[2] He was not appointed to officiate at another first-class match until 1988.[3]

He was the cousin of the Test cricketer Farooq Hamid.[4]
