Khaled Mashud (Bengali: খালেদ মাসুদ) (born February 8, 1976 in Rajshahi) is a Bangladeshi cricketer. He has been Bangladesh's regular wicketkeeper and is one of the most experienced members of the side. Bangladeshi coach Dav Whatmore has gone so far as to claim Mashud as the best wicketkeeper in Asia.[1] His place in the side came under threat, however, with the emergence of Mushfiqur Rahim, combined with his own failure to score a half century in 24 Test innings. He was subsequently dropped from the Bangladesh squad for the 2007 Cricket World Cup and after a brief return against Sri Lanka did not feature, with Rahim and Dhiman Ghosh being preferred as wicketkeepers. Mashud's greatest achievement with the bat was his unbeaten second-innings century in St Lucia, which gave Bangladesh an honourable draw in their first Caribbean encounter. He was one of three Bangladeshi batsmen to score a century in that series. He announced his retirement from international cricket in 2008 but continues to play domestic cricket in Bangladesh as captain of the Rajshahi Division team.

In February 2006, he was fined after being found guilty of bringing the game into disrepute during a match against Sri Lanka.[2]
