Pakistan-born refugee Fawad Ahmed was named to Australia’s Test squad for tours of the West Indies and England later this year after an impressive domestic first-class season. Legspinner Ahmed, 33, who took 48 wickets at an average of 24.79 for Victoria state in the Sheffield Shield this season, joins Nathan Lyon as Australia’s spin bowling options. Ahmed, who sought asylum in Australia after fleeing Pakistan in 2010, was delighted with his call-up. “It’s been an amazing 2015 for me,” he said. “I’ve bowled with a big heart and a big chest in every situation.”
