A young turk from England, Rehan Ahmed is making headlines right before Pakistan's three-match Test series against England.
Rehan Ahmed is an 18-year-old leg spinner. He has been included in England's squad for the first time and can play on Pakistan tour.
If Rehan Ahmed, who represents Leicestershire in county cricket, makes his debut, he will set the record for the youngest international debut for England.
Rehan Ahmed came into the limelight from the Under-19 World Cup in early 2022. He was the second highest wicket-taker for England in this tournament.
Recently, in the Royal London Cup, Rehan snared 5 wickets in 7 matches and scored runs at an average of 44.50 as well.
Rehan had joined as a net bowler for the Pakistan series but England's coach Brendon McCullum recognized his ability and decided to include him in the squad.
Rehan Ahmed also impressed Shane Warne with his spin prowess as an old video of the conversation between the two is getting viral on social media.
Shane Warne praised Rehan Ahmed. He had said, "I will keep a close eye on you. I think you will play first-class cricket at the age of 15."
England Team haven't played a single Test match in Pakistan since 2005. The first Test between Pakistan and England will be played on December 1 in Rawalpindi.
