Playing for one's country is the biggest honour a sportsman could get, and Rehan Ahmed accomplished that when he became England's youngest men's Test player when he took on Pakistan in Karachi in December. 

Little would he know that he could also become the nation's youngest men's ODI and T20I player by March when he toured Bangladesh on England's short white-ball tour.

Ahmed, 18, has played one Test, one ODI, and two T20Is, picking up nine wickets, which includes a Test fifer. 

Speaking about his meteoric rise in international cricket, the leg-spinner said that it was a 'dream come true' to play in all three formats for England in such a short span. 

According to cricket 365, Ahmed further stated that he looks up to Adil Rashid and Moeen Ali, who have been inspirations to the bowler since growing up days. 

Here's what Ahmed said

“I don’t think even the Test match has sunk in yet. To make my debuts in all three formats in such a short space of time is a dream come true."

To finish, the Nottingham-born opened up on aspirations of playing in 'The Ashes 2023', like any other cricketer from England.
