England Announce Playing XI For 3rd Test At Karachi, Youngster Rehan Ahmed To Make Debut

The English side for the last Test between England Men and Pakistan, which begins on Saturday in Karachi, has been confirmed. Rehan Ahmed, an 18-year-old making his debut in place of Will Jacks, and Ben Foakes replacing Jimmy Anderson are the two changes made by the Three Lions. 

Rehan Ahmed, a teenage wonder, has been chosen to break Brian Close’s 73-year record on Saturday and become England’s youngest-ever Test player. Before the last Test, the visitors lead the series 2-0.

Ahmed will play in his debut Test match for England, according to captain Ben Stokes, as they attempt to sweep Pakistan in style. Ahmed will be 18 years and 126 days old when he enters the field, breaking Close’s record from 1949 when he faced New Zealand at Old Trafford 

Ahmed, though, complained of feeling ill during England training on the day of his anticipated debut and was sent back to the hotel to recuperate. Although it is not anticipated that it would be enough to prevent him from playing on game day, anything is conceivable given how many people on this tour have been unwell.

The leg-spinning all-rounder for Leicestershire has seen a spectacular rise since making his first-class debut against Worcestershire in May. Even though he has only featured in three games so far, in his final summer outing against Derby, he took five wickets and scored a century.

Ahmed, who had previously delivered match-winning heroics for the England U19 team’s journey to the World Cup final in the Caribbean in January and February, drew the attention of observers in the shorter forms, first in the Blast and then in the Hundred for the Southern Brave.

Ahmed has long been a target for England; as a 13-year-old, he even dismissed Alastair Cook in the practise nets while being seen by the late Shane Warne, who predicted a promising future for him. That future will begin in the nation of his father’s birth, which is the country of his family’s origin.
