Although Australia lost the second T20 International against England at Chester-le-Street, Ahmed was impressive with the ball picking up three wickets for 25 runs.
"I was always praying and making prayers that I would play for Australia and play good cricket and that was the moment," Ahmed said.
"When you take a wicket for your country and are representing the country, there's nothing better, so it was to say thank you,” he added.
"… The dream has come true. I've waited for a long time to be included and been through a really tough time since I start my cricket.”
