Early Life

Khaleel Ahmed | KreedOn

Ahmed was born in Tonk, Rajasthan to Khursheed Ahmed who worked as a compounder. 

Much like many conventional Indian Families, Khaleel’s father wanted him to become a Doctor and was hesitant about the idea of his son becoming a cricketer. But Khaleel after much effort finally convinced him. But before that, Khaleel joined a cricket academy at the age of twelve, without his parent’s knowledge.

After joining the cricket academy, Khaleel met Imtiyaz Khan, who recognized Khaleel’s talent. Imtiyaz enrolled Khaleel in the Rajasthan Cricket Academy.

Khaleel Ahmed was bought in the 2017 IPL Edition where he was bought for 10 lakhs by Delhi Daredevils. However, He didn’t get to play any match in the IPL Edition.

Khaleel got to work with greats like Zaheer Khan and Rahul Dravid during his stay in Delhi which he believes helped him improve a lot. Khaleel worked a lot hard to develop his pace and bowling quality and had a great domestic season after that IPL.

After his remarkable performance in the 2017-18 Domestic Season, Khaleel was picked up at a hefty price of 3 Crores by Sunrisers Hyderabad, a team famous for having great bowlers. 

That season too, unfortunately, Khaleel barely got to play except in an expensive outing against KKR at the Eden Gardens. However, here too Khaleel had the opportunity to interact with some of the best bowlers in the world.

In the IPL 2023, the Delhi Capitals acquired the services of Syed Khaleel Ahmed for Rs 5.25 Cr.
