The Indian cricket team leveled the series (India vs South Africa) by defeating South Africa in the second ODI of the three-match series on Sunday. With this, Shahbaz Ahmed became the 247th player to represent India’s senior national team in the One Day International format. Shahbaz impressed with the ball in his debut match and also got his first wicket. But, his journey to the Indian team has not been easy. Coming from a common family, Shahbaz faced many difficulties to pursue his passion for cricket. At this time the all-rounder also got an ultimatum from his father (Shahbaz Ahmed Father) to take a big decision for his career.
To the dismay of his parents, Shahbaz left engineering studies midway. He also left Haryana and went to Kolkata to pursue his cricketing career. When Shahbaz was in the process, the all-rounder got a warning from his father, who asked him to do something big or not come back.

In a conversation with The Indian Express, Shahbaz’s father Ahmed Jan and his mother Abnam spoke about the subject and their son’s cricketing journey.
Shahbaz’s mother said, “He was determined to do something big. Even his college professors told him it was a mistake because he was a good student. Shahbaz told his department head that ‘ One day you will give me my degree and you will also congratulate me. And this happened last year.”
Jan revealed, “I told him that day to do something, otherwise don’t come back.”
Partha Pratim Chaudhary helped Shahbaz to join the Tapan Memorial Club. And then after that the talented all-rounder never looked back.
Shahbaz’s mother Abnam said, “Parth sir is an angel sent by Allah. In today’s time, who keeps an unknown person in his house, he kept Shahbaz as his son, the number of prayers I can give him is less.”
Shahbaz’s international debut took place on Sunday but he has been playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) since 2020. With the amount of success the 27-year-old has had in the last few years, his future certainly looks bright.
