Teenage spinner Rehan Ahmed made history on Monday during England and host Pakistan’s third and final match, only days after claiming his first-ever Three Lions scalp in his maiden Test match. Ahmed, who is 16 years and 126 days old, is the player that made his England debut. On Day 3 of the Karachi Test match, the exciting young talent claimed his first five-wicket haul.

The English teenager now holds the record for being the youngest player to notch five wickets in his Test debut. When Ahmed defeated Agha Salman, who was removed in Pakistan’s innings’ 75th over, he broke the Test record. The England spinner removed the likes of Babar Azam, Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Rizwan, Mohammad Wasim Jr, and Salman to complete his first-ever five-wicket haul that too in his debut match for the Three Lions.

The senior spinner Jack Leach and Ahmed both took eight wickets as Pakistan, captained by Babar, was dismissed for 216 in 74.5 overs. Additionally, Ahmed claimed two wickets in Pakistan’s first innings. Ahmed’s outstanding bowling performance has given England the upper hand as the visitors aim to defeat Pakistan 3-0 in Karachi.

In the third and final Test of the bilateral series, England scored 354 in its first innings, while Babar’s Pakistan team only managed 304. After Pakistan lost for 216 in the second innings, England, spearheaded by Ben Stokes, needs 167 runs to win the third and final Test. If Stokes and company win three games in a row in Karachi, it would be Pakistan’s first-ever Test series sweep at home. Earlier, at the Rawalpindi Cricket Stadium, the Stokes-led England team destroyed Babar’s Pakistan by 74 runs in the first match of the series. Then, England defeated Pakistan by 26 runs in the second Test to take a commanding 2-0 lead in the three-match series.
