Description:
Jahangir Shah Badsha (born 19 July 1949 in Kushtia) is a former Bangladeshi cricketer who played in 5 ODI from 1986 to 1990. He is sometimes known on scoresheets by his nickname Badshah.

Shah made his debut in the national side in 1979, and until his retirement in 1990, he was the most reliable all-rounder of the side.

He was one of the players who took part in Bangladesh's first ever official ODI (against Pakistan at Moratuwa in 1986). Though he was out for a duck, he took 2/23 from 9 overs.
