Earlier, Sam Curran had mentioned that he enjoyed playing in IPL 2020 and has learned a lot from the tournament. “Really enjoyed the IPL and feel I have taken my game to a different standard in terms of my learning. I took a lot away from that group and the coaching staff at Chennai. I feel my game has improved since I went there and I want to keep trying to improve and become a regular,” the English all-rounder Curran said.
Curran played in all 14 matches for Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020. He scored 186 runs in 11 innings along with a fifty. He was also the highest wicket-taker for CSK with 13 wickets in 13 innings.
