Khaleel Khurshid Ahmed hails from Tonk, Rajasthan. He is a young fast bowler who represented India in U-19 World Cup 2016. A considerable amount of pace and his ability to swing helped him grab the attention of his U-19 coach Rahul Dravid. Fortunately, Dravid was also the coach of the Delhi franchise then and thus he convinced the owners to buy Khaleel in the Indian T20 League auction for his base price of INR 10 lakhs.

Khaleel Ahmed Profile

Khaleel Khurshid Ahmed hails from Tonk, Rajasthan. He is a young fast bowler who represented India in U-19 World Cup 2016. A considerable amount of pace and his ability to swing helped him grab the attention of his U-19 coach Rahul Dravid. Fortunately, Dravid was also the coach of the Delhi franchise then and thus he convinced the owners to buy Khaleel in the Indian T20 League auction for his base price of INR 10 lakhs.


Khaleel got the opportunity to work with Indian legends like Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid while he was with Delhi. The left-arm pacer kept working harder to improve his pace and fitness. Khaleel represented Rajasthan in first-class cricket and was impressive in the 2017-18 season. After a prosperous domestic season, Ahmed was picked up by the Hyderabad franchise at a whopping amount of INR 3 crores, almost 15 times his base price.


In the same year, Khaleel got his maiden ODI call-up as he debuted against an ineffective Hong Kong team in the Asia Cup. The pacer was outstanding on his debut as he picked up a 3-fer to begin his ODI career. 2018 was a remarkable year for Khaleel which led to his introduction to the shortest form of cricket. Khaleel Ahmed also was one of the three pacers that went to England with India's 15-man World Cup squad to help the Indian batsmen in net sessions.
