He can open, he can play in the middle, he can finish off the innings, he can swing the ball, he can field at any position, is Sam Curran legend in making?
Seems after quality all rounders like Ben Stokes, Chris Woakes, England have found another asset in the form of Sam Curran who can completely change the complexion of the game from any situation against any opposition, in any format.
Not only for England Sam Curran IPL stats are quite phenomenal. Do you know since IPL 2020 Sam Curran is the only player to pick 15+ wickets and score 200+ runs. What a player he is turning out to be for CSK.
Credit to Chennai Super Kings management and MS Dhoni as well, the way they have used Moeen Ali and Sam Curran in CSK. I guess they have used them better than England cricket (ECB).
Despite CSK had a miserable IPL last year Sam Curran was their biggest positive in IPL 2020. Even Sam Curran today in IPL 2021 season is great going so far. In the recent past, we witnessed how Cummins thrashed 30 runs in Sam Curran’s over but still, Dhoni went with him for the second last over. And the way he comeback in that over shows his character as well.
Harsha Bhogle on Sam Curran
“Just have to admire Sam Curran. Does everything the team asks of him, Cameos at the end, takes the new ball, happy to bowl at the death and always contributes”.
Sam Curran and Tom Curran are brothers but no one talks about the elder one much. In fact, Sam Curran’s father Kevin Curran was a Zimbabwean international cricketer. But only Sam Curran came in limelight due to extraordinary performances for England and franchise in IPL.
Even people in India have started loving Sam Curran. Recently, Sam Curran sunglasses picture went viral where he was fielding on the boundary.
Sam Curran is just 22 years of age ( as Sam Curran is born on 3 June 1998). So people were funnily quoting on Sam Curran board exam and education.
” Bad news for CSK as Sam Curran won’t be taking part in remaining of the matches as schools are reopening in England” 😀
Few Sam Curran achievements which he will be really proud of
In his limited cricketing career span, Curran has proved his worth.
1. Do you remember when India toured England back in 2018 tests, Indian bowlers were roaring and had collapsed England’s top order. Then Sam Curran came to the rescue and saved the entire England batting lineup.
Not only in that match but twice or thrice in that series he had done that resulted in India lost that series by 4-1 which they could’ve won by 4-1.
2. Sam Curran in IPL 2019 took a hat trick as well when he played for Kings XI Punjab (KXIP).
In IPL 2019 auction Sam Curran was the highest overseas cricketer with a 7.2 crore tag. He was just 20 and a half years old then which is remarkable.
3. Maintaining a hot girlfriend like Isabella Symonds 😛
There are very few cricketers who add such a great value to their side and Sam Curran is definitely one of them.
You can use him anywhere in your batting lineup as an opener as a middle order batsman or as a pinch hitter. You can ask him to bowl when the ball is swinging, in deaths when the batsman is going after your front line bowlers or even in the middle overs when the ball isn’t doing much. Such a great edition, isn’t he?
Cricket pundits, fans keep your eyes on Sam Curran, he definitely will be the player to watch out for in the years to come.
