Jahid Ahmed made his debut for Essex during the 2005 season, having represented Essex Cricket Board’s under-17s team since 2003. He is yet another pacer to have worked regularly with fast bowling expert Ian Pont and played in one first-class match of each during the 2005 and 2006 seasons. On his debut match in List A cricket, he contributed with a match-winning 4/32 against the touring Sri Lankans.
In 2010, Ahmed was selected as one of 21 players to form the first Unicorns squad to take part in the Clydesdale Bank 40 domestic limited overs competition against the regular first-class counties. The Unicorns were made up of 15 former county cricket professionals and 6 young cricketers looking to make it in the professional game.
