Ahmed Shehzad (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 use to play domestic cricket for Habib Bank Limited. He made his One Day International debut for Pakistan on 24 April 2009 against Australia and also debut T20I on 7 May 2009 against same team.

Personal life[edit]

Ahmed Shehzad was born on 23 November 1991 in Lahore, Punjab, Pakistan.

Shehzad is active on the social networking site Twitter (@iamahmadshahzad).[1]

Shehzad is Muslim and has two elder brothers. He is good friends with Jamaican/West Indian batsman Chris Gayle.

In 2014, after his blitzkrieg innings in the ICC T20 world cup, Shehzad dedicated his Man of the Match trophy to the victims of the Thar Desert drought that occurred in early 2014.


In limited-overs domestic cricket Ahmed Shehzad plays for Lahore Lions and in June 2011 during the Faysal Bank T-20 Super Eights Shehzad top scored the innings by scoring 74 of 47 balls imposing a mammoth total of 218 against the opposition Sialkot Stallions who in turn were bowled out for 173 Shehzad took two-catches and a wicket as well he was rewarded man-of the match for his superb performance.[2]

Against Australia, in his debut match, he scored one boundary before he was ran-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 and he only played one game which was the opening game against England, being caught by Paul Collingwood. Thereafter, Pakistan changed their opening combination removing Shehzad and his partner Salman Butt and replacing them with Shahzaib Hasan and Kamran Akmal.

After batting at number 3 in the first two matches of a Twenty20 International series against New Zealand, Shehzad replaced Shahid Afridi as opener and scored his maiden Twenty20 half-century scoring 54 of just 34 balls in an innings that included 10 fours.[3] After that series, the Pakistan selectors picked Shehzad for the six-match ODI series against New Zealand with a potential place as a World Cup opener also available.[4] After scoring 115 an ODI against New Zealand during the series, Shehzad was given a place in the Pakistan world cup squad.

On his 25th T20I Shehzad scored his 1st T20I century, and became the first pakistani to do so. His innings came against Bangladesh in the ICC T20 World Cup.This was also the highest score scored by a Pakistani batsmen

The Barisal Burners bought Shehzad for $50,000 to pay in the 2012 Bangladesh Premier League.[5] With 486 runs from 12 matches, Shehzad was the tournament's leading run-scorer.[6]

On 30 March, in the T20 world cup group match against Bangladesh, he became the first Pakistani batsman to have scored centuries in all three formats, his match-winning knock of an unbeaten 111 off 62 deliveries earned him a man of the match award.

Test career[edit]

Ahmed Shehzad was shortlisted for the Pakistan A match against South Africa in the UAE in October 2013. He scored a fifty in the game and 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. Shehzad again selected for the three Tests against Sri Lanka, also in the UAE, starting on 31 December 2013, and stretching to January 2014. 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.[7] The match was drawn.

In his 3rd test match Shehzad scored a maiden century [8] against Sri Lanka. He scored 147 run from 275 balls and batted for 339 minutes, hit 12 fours and a six.
