Ahmed Shahzad (Urdu: احمد شہزاد ‎ born 23 November 1991) is a Pakistani cricketer. He is a right-handed opening batsman and also a part-time legbreak bowler. He used to play domestic cricket for Habib Bank Limited. He made his One Day International and T20I debut for Pakistan in April 2009 against Australia. Shehzad is well known for his belligerent batting and trucelent attitude

Personal life[edit]

Shehzad was born on 23 November 1991 in the city of Lahore. He is an ethnic Afridi Pashtun. When he was eight months old, his father died. He got married to his childhood friend Sana Muraad on 19 September 2015.

Domestic career[edit]

In limited-overs domestic cricket, Ahmed Shehzad plays for The Lahore Lions and is the highest run-scorer in the team's history. in June 2011 during the Faysal Bank T-20 Super Eights, Shehzad scored 74 of 47 balls imposing a total of 218 against the opposition Sialkot Stallions who in turn were bowled out for 173 Shehzad took two-catches and a wicket and was rewarded man-of the match for his performance.[3]

International career[edit]

A naturally-aggressive batsman hailing from Lahore, Ahmed Shehzad has established himself as an opening batsman. He made his first class debut in 2007. The innings which led to a call-up for the national team was a 167 he scored in Pakistan Youth’s victory against England, where he was instrumental as Pakistan chased down 342.[4]

The right-handed batsman, who took to the game aged just seven, has over the years been a prolific scorer for Pakistan's Under-19s and Youth sides. Just 16, he made his domestic debut for Habib Bank Limited and the first signs of his enormous talent were evident when with a fine 167, he helped Pakistan Under-19 chase down a stiff target of 342 set by England in a Youth Test. Back home, he went to score 315 runs in a 5-0 mauling of Australia Under-19s in a Youth ODI series and a whirlwind 92 of just 49 balls for the Lahore Eagles in domestic game gave further proof of his talent. Following a successful 2008 Under-19 World Cup campaign, he made it to Pakistan's Test squad for the 2009 home series against Sri Lanka.


Shehzad made his debut for Pakistan in a one-day international against Australia on 29 April 2009. In his maiden match he scored one boundary before he was run-out. The following match he scored 40 in an innings that included 4 fours. The third match he scored 43 but this time just scored 2 fours and in the final match of the series he scored 19 with 1 boundary to his name before he was given out leg-before. These consistent performances meant that Shehzad made his Twenty20 debut against Australia scoring a single boundary before being caught in the deep. Despite a failure in the Twenty20 Shehzad was selected for the Pakistan squad in the 2009 ICC World Twenty20 he only played one-game which was the opening game against England being caught by Paul Collingwood Pakistan changed their combination removing Shehzad and his partner Salman Butt and replaced them with Shahzaib Hasan and Kamran Akmal.


However he was recalled to the side in late 2010 for a tour to New Zealand. He sparkled with good performances in T20Is and ODIs too. He scored his maiden T20I fifty at Christchurch and then went on to score his maiden ODI ton at Hamilton which sealed his place in the World Cup 2011 squad. Shehzad featured in five games that Pakistan played in the World Cup but couldn't cross even 15 in any of them.

2011 – 2012[edit]

The good show earned him a place in the squad for the World Cup 2011, but Shehzad failed to impress. He managed to retain his spot for the West Indies tour that followed, and even made his second ODI century there, but was left out of the squad for the tour of Zimbabwe.

The Barisal Burners bought Shehzad for $50,000 to pay in the 2012 Bangladesh Premier League. With 486 runs from 12 matches, Shehzad was the tournament’s leading run-scorer.


He was dropped from the Pakistan squad in 2011 and made his comeback more than two years later in 2013. A fruitful period soon followed as he grew in confidence and stature and a pile of handy scores stood out to prove his matured second-coming. The South African tour proved to be a watershed moment in his career. A brilliant century in Port Elizabeth helped Pakistan become the first Asian team to win a bi-lateral ODI series in South Africa. A decent ODI series against the Proteas in the UAE and South Africa and then against Sri Lanka in the UAE paved the way for a much awaited Test debut against Sri Lanka.This was based on good showing in the limited overs leg of the tour. He debuted in the first Test, and was presented his first Test cap by Younis Khan. He scored 38 in the first innings and 55 in the second.[5] The match was drawn. He didn't disappoint as he hit a confident fifty in the second innings in Abu Dhabi and sent out a message that he can adapt quickly to any format of the game. Ahmed Shahzad was shortlisted for the Pakistan A match against South Africa in the UAE in October 2013. He scored a fifty in the game was selected for one of the 3 remaining slots in the Test squad alongside Shan Masood and Asad Shafiq. He was, however, not selected in the playing XI in either of the 2 Tests against South Africa.[6] In his 3rd test match Shahzad scored a maiden century [7] against Sri Lanka. He scored 147 run from 275 balls and batted for 339 minutes, hit 12 fours and a six.

2014 - 2015[edit]

He scored hundreds against Australia and New Zealand, but had to miss two Tests against New Zealand after being struck on the head by a Corey Anderson bouncer. He returned in the subsequent ODI series and smashed his sixth ODI century in the third game. Shehzad is an integral part of the team that was picked for the 2015 World Cup. After the World cup Shehzad was dropped from the team once again along with his team mate Umar Akmal from the test and ODI sides for the series against Bangladesh but was recalled for the Test and ODI Series against Sri Lanka. He made few fifties in both Tests and ODIs against Sri Lanka, but didn't make a hard impact. However, Pakistan won all series and moved high in the rankings. He scored 95 runs in the fourth ODI which sealed the series for Pakistan.


Shehzad is not known to hesitate when speaking his mind. After smashing a ton against Bangladesh in the World T20 tournament, he dedicated the century to all his critics, who had “said things about him.” Furthermore, the PCB issued Shehzad an official reprimand after his frequent quarrels with Sri Lankan batsman Tillakaratne Dilshan about Dilshan's past and current religions.[8]
