Ahmed is also a capable lower order batsman who can hit a long ball. He has had 2 ventures to the Uk, firstly in 2014 for Bromyard cc where in a struggling side he finished the leading wicket taker in the league with 65 wickets. Then in 2016 he played in the strong North Staffs and South Cheshire league where he took 41 wickets.
In 2018, hindered by visa delays in Pakistan and an early call back, Ahmed joined Tickhill in June and collected 32 wickets in just 17 games, chipping in with 294 runs at 26.73. He returned to the UK in summer 2021 and things couldn’t have been more different. A timely arrival and a full season here saw Ahmed put in an excellent return for Corsham CC. 392 runs @ 28.00 was solid but his 49 wickets @ 13.04 was outstanding and saw him finish top of the league for wickets.
He backed this up again in 2022, pummelling 578 runs @ 25.13 and finishing with an impressive 51 wickets @ 15.41 with a best of 6-13. He headed east for summer 2023, linking with Bexley CC in the ECB Kent Premier League, bagging 55 wickets @ 16.78 for the club in an excellent return.
Now residing in the UK permanently, Ahmed is based in Kent and holds a Spousal visa and will be classified as a local player under the ECB regulations.
