Ahmed shot into the consciousness of the Essex public when he took 4-32 against Sri Lanka on his one-day debut in 2006. He had gained a place on the county’s pre-season tour of Cape Town in 2006 but a back injury hampered his progress for the majority of the season. He played just four matches in all competitions in 2007, and made a solitary championship appearance the following season.
