18-year-old Rehan Ahmed made his Test debut for England in the third and final Test match against Pakistan in Karachi. The leg-spinner, who possesses a deceptive googly, will come into the side as a replacement for Will Jacks, becoming the youngest player to play Test cricket for England Men’s team aged 18 years and 126 days.
Ahmed impressed in the ICC U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup as England’s second-best wicket-taker with 12 wickets in four games at an average of 12.58. England, who are leading the three-Test series 2-0, made one more change with Ben Foakes coming in for Jimmy Anderson.
