T20 Career of Noor Ahmad

Rashid Khan, a senior Afghanistan spinner, is excited to coach fellow Afghans Noor Ahmad and Rahmanullah Gurbaz at Gujarat Titans (GT) in the IPL 2022. Ahmad, 17 years old and has previously played in the Pakistan Super League, and the Big Bash League is the youngest player in the IPL 2022 auction. Overall, the left-arm wrist spinner has 35 wickets at an average of 29.60 and a respectable economy rate of 7.39 in 37 T20s, with his best numbers of 3-12.

He recently competed in the U19 World Cup for Afghanistan, taking ten wickets in six matches. At the auction last month, he was signed by the Hardik Pandya-led Titans for his introductory price of 30 lakh. Rashid Khan gushed over the kid during a pre-season news conference but warned that the “IPL is a very huge stage” demands a lot of mental toughness. The leggie said he’ll offer his knowledge and attempt to keep Ahmad calm and comfortable as a veteran player.

Besides possessing a bowling motion virtually identical to Rashid Khan’s, Ahmad is also a terrific power batter. However, he is unlikely to make the Titans’ starting lineup and may be utilized as a backup to his older countryman. Gurbaz, another young Afghan prodigy, has also joined the Titans’ roster. Gurbaz is a hard-hitting wicketkeeper-batsman with over 1600 T20 runs at a strike rate of over 150 and 20 T20I appearances.
