Turning out to be one of the finest prospects in world cricket, young leg-spinner Rehan Ahmed has set a new record for the English side. The 18-year-old made his T20I debut against Bangladesh in the second game of the ongoing series which made him the youngest England player ever to play in all three formats.

Previously, he was handed his debut Test cap against Pakistan in Karachi whereas his ODI debut happened a few days back in Bangladesh. Not just this, Rehan is also the first teenager to feature for England's men's side in T20I cricket.

Ahmed took everyone by storm after he grabbed a fifer in his maiden and only Test until now, helping his side to clinch a sensational victory in the third Test of the series, thus, completing a three-nil whitewash over the hosts.

In the third ODI of the Bangladesh series, the leg-spinner after making his debut broke the record of Ben Hollioake of being the youngest in that format too.

Talking about the current series, the visiting England side lost the first game after they couldn't defend 156 as Bangladesh chased down the score with six wickets in hand and two overs remaining.

Moreover, the Three Lions got the better off them in the ODI series winning by a margin of 2-1.
