England all-rounder Tom Curran may not participate in the upcoming season of the domestic T20 competition, the T20 Blast after being reportedly sidelined for three months at least due to a lower back stress fracture as scans revealed the depth of his injury.

The right-arm seamer has represented the country in two Tests, 28 ODIs, and 20 T20 internationals so far and has combined taken 65 wickets across formats. Though expensive at times, Curran has the ability to vary his line and length in death overs and his back of the hand slower deliveries have always been his strength.

Tom Curran’s T20 career in the last two years has been marred due to Covid and other reasons. He missed the entire BBL 2020-21 season due to the Covid-19 restrictions. He was part of the Delhi Capitals team and played a handful of matches during the IPL 2021 season. He was then called up as cover for his brother Sam Curran in the England T20 World Cup 2021 squad but didn’t get to play a game.

The English all-rounder had recently pulled out of the entire BBL 2021-22 season after playing just four games after facing discomforts in his back and will now go into rehabilitation under the guidance of Surrey’s medical for the next few months.

The 26-year-old pacer was not named in England’s squad for the upcoming five T20Is against West Indies and he will not be taking part in the domestic campaign as well the Cricketer reported. Furthermore, Curran will not be ready to participate in any cricket by the start of the County Championship, a first-class tournament that he last played in 2019.

While some dates are known, the full calendar for the new county season has yet to be published. In a draft schedule seen by The Cricketer, the Blast is due to get underway on May 25.

The hope will be that he can educe full fitness in time for England men’s white-ball encounters scheduled later this year. They face the Netherlands in three ODIs in June before the home series against India and South Africa in July.
