In the Intercontinental Cup in July 2016, he made his First Class debut for Afghanistan against the Netherlands. Within a year of his First Class debut, he was given an international debut based on his success in the lower levels and his classical strokeplay.

On March 15, 2019, he made his Test debut against Ireland in Dehradun. After Ireland were bowled out for 172 runs, Afghanistan took a 142-run lead. In the first innings, Ihsanullah scored seven runs. Ireland improved their performance in the second innings, scoring 288 and giving Afghanistan a target of 147. In a good run-chase, the debutant stayed undefeated on 65.
