Rehan Ahmed becomes first teenager to play for England men's T20 side

History made for England men’s T20 side as Rehan Ahmed, 18, becomes the first teenager to play for the team as he lines up in penultimate game against Bangladesh in Dhaka

  • Rehan Ahmed has been named in the XI for England’s penultimate T20 clash
  • They trail 1-0 in the series and are looking to draw level with the hosts in Dhaka
  • He became England’s youngest ever Test debutant last year on Pakistan tour 

Rehan Ahmed has become England’s first men’s teenage T20 cricketer after being named in their line-up for the penultimate match of the series against Bangladesh at Dhaka.

Ahmed has already made history as England’s youngest Test and ODI men’s cricketer this winter and the 18-year-old will make his maiden T20 appearance as the tourists try to level the three-match series.

The leg-spinning all-rounder replaces fast bowler Mark Wood in England’s only change to the side that lost the opener by six wickets in Chattogram.

Captain Jos Buttler, who has been carded at first drop with Phil Salt and Dawid Malan opening, lost the toss for the eighth time in a row this year, with Bangladesh opting to field first.

The hosts also made one change as off-spinner Mehidy Hasan Miraz replaced all-rounder Shamim Hossain.
