One of the biggest talents in world cricket, Sam Curran is respected across the globe.
Having made his first-class debut in July 2015, at the age of 17, Sam is regarded as one of the finest prospects in the game and made his Test debut in 2018. Enjoying his first full summer with the club in 2017 having completed his A Levels, the younger Curran brother has been a consistent presence in both County Championship and Royal London One Day Cup matches.
Often opening the bowling, left armer Sam is capable of swinging the ball both ways and can also prove destructive in his lower order batting position. He demonstrated those skills at the highest level in 2018 as he was named Player of the Series during England’s 4-1 Test win over Virat Kohli’s India. He is now a regular with England across all three formats as well as famous in India for his exploits in the IPL.
A maiden First Class century was a long time coming for Sam but he eventually broke the duct with a fine century against Kent in June with a massive six into the Micky Stewart Members Pavilion to send The Kia Oval into rapturous applause.
Since returning from a back injury, Curran has taken his T20 game to a world class level with bat, ball and in the field to become an integral part of England’s T20 side.Related Articles
