Sultan's Bio

A Pakistani-born dynamic all-rounder, Sultan Ahmed is a professional cricketer for the United Arab Nations (UAE).  The 30-year-old spinner left Pakistan to move to UAE in 2013, having initially harboured the dream of playing for the country of his birth in international cricket.

Sultan made his T20I debut for UAE against PNG at Abu Dhabi on April 12, 2017, and since debuting in the T20 side in 2017, Sultan has been among the most consistent performers in a side that has faced its share of troubles. He received his maiden ODI cap in 2019 against Zimbabwe in Harare. 

One of the best moments of the spinner came against Kuwait as he took four wickets for just 9 runs to bowl the national team to a trophy in the first phase of qualifying for the Asia Cup. Sultan himself has an individual landmark in his sights. The left-arm spinner has an economy rate of 5.91 in the 22 T20 internationals he has played so far which puts him in second place in the all-time list of thriftiest bowlers in the format, behind just Daniel Vettori.

While that tournament-winning effort in Muscat in February might have been in a low-key competition, Sultan has proved a good fit for bigger stages, too. He was a reliable performer in the Abu Dhabi T10 at the end of 2019 for Qalandars and will be hoping to produce the same for Lahore Qalandars in the Pakistan Super League (PSL) as he is picked up by the franchise as a replacement for Shakib Al Hasan who is on national duty.
