McCullum further said that Ahmed is a “fully-fledged international cricketer” and they will have to look after him. The 41-year-old also said he would encourage the leggy youngster to play as much franchise cricket as possible.

“Why not give him a chance to rub shoulders with other players and collect those experiences? What other 18 year old is going to have those opportunities? He is a fully fledged international cricketer. The important thing now is that we continue to take care of him,” said the former New Zealand skipper.

“I will encourage him to play as much franchise cricket and get as much experience around the world and play with different players, under different coaches and under different conditions.”
