LONDON: Teenage leg- incentive Rehan Ahmed could come England’s youthful men’s Test cricketer after being added to the team on Wednesday for the three-match stint of Pakistan starting coming week.
Leicestershire’s England under-19 transnational is 18 and 102 days and if named would beat Yorkshire’s Brian Close, who represented England at 18 times and 149 days against New Zealand in July 1949.
“We know he’s not the finished composition and has raw eventuality, but Ben(Stokes), myself and the rest of the trainers like how he approaches his game,” said head trainer Brendon McCullum in a statement.
“The experience of being part of the team in Pakistan will be monstrously salutary for him, and he’ll add to the make-up of our team.”
England, presently in Abu Dhabi, fly to Pakistan on Saturday with the first Test in Rawalpindi on December 1.
The Test will be England’s first in Pakistan since 2005. transnational brigades have largely steered clear since an attack by zealots on the Sri Lankan platoon machine in Lahore in 2009 killed six bobbies and two civilians.
