KARACHI: England's 18-year-old spinner Rehan Ahmed spun England to the driving force in the third Test against Pakistan in Karachi. 

Rehan, who has roots from Pakistan, took five-wicket haul to become youngest-ever bowler in the world to achieve this milestone on Test debut. 

Speaking to media after a successful day, Rehan said the plan was to enjoy his bowling. 

"It feels great to achieve a feat on debut," shared Rehan who took seven wickets overall on his Test debut. "The plan was simple, go out there an enjoy my bowling. I wasn't nervous at all, just bowled according to the plan and enjoyed," the youngster maintained. 

Rehan bagged Pakistan skipper Babar Azam, Saud Shakeel, Mohammad Rizwan, Agha Salman and Mohammad Wasim Jr in the second innings. 

"Babar's wicket was special," Rehan shared upon being asked. 

To a query about England's intent after they were set to chase 167 runs, Rehan said they had plans to chase it down today. 

"We played just like we do. Yeah, the plan was to chase it down today," he concluded. 

England need just 55 runs on the last day tomorrow to whitewash Pakistan in three-match series. It will be Pakistan's first-ever whitewash at home.
