Fareed Ahmad Malik Profile

Fareed Ahmad, born on August 10th, 1994, in Nangarhar, Afghanistan, is a formidable left-arm fast-medium bowler representing Afghanistan on the international stage. Despite Afghanistan's reputation for producing exceptional spinners, Ahmad stands out as a rare gem with his penchant for bowling fast and hitting the deck hard. Ahmad's journey in international cricket began in 2014 when he made his debut for the Afghanistan national cricket team. His ODI debut came on December 2nd against UAE, albeit it was a challenging start as he went for 44 runs in six overs without managing to secure a wicket. However, Ahmad's resilience and determination shone through, and two years later, he made his T20I debut against the same opponent, UAE, on December 14, 2016. This time, Ahmad showcased his raw pace and ability to turn the game around, bagging two crucial wickets while conceding just 21 runs in his four-over spell, ultimately contributing to Afghanistan's victory by 11 runs. In September 2018, Ahmad's talent earned him a spot in Kabul's squad for the inaugural edition of the Afghanistan Premier League tournament, further solidifying his presence in the domestic cricket circuit. His potential was recognized once again in September 2021 when he was named as one of the two travelling reserves in Afghanistan's squad for the 2021 ICC Men's T20 World Cup. As he continues to hone his skills and make significant contributions to Afghan cricket, Ahmad's inclusion in the 15-member squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in 2024 underscores his importance as a key asset for his national team, reaffirming his status as a formidable fast bowler in the world of cricket.
