Talented all-rounder from England, Tom Curran gets yet another deal in his kitty for the upcoming season. He has been signed by the Sydney Sixers for the upcoming edition of Big Bash League. The youngster is pretty excited to join the franchise, that has got a rich history. He will be staying with the franchise for the whole season as well.
Last year, Tom Curran bagged a deal from Kolkata Knight Riders in the IPL, as the replacement for Mitchell Starc. However, his stint didn’t go as per expectations, which also let the franchise release him for the upcoming edition of IPL.
I am delighted to join Sydney Sixers – Tom Curran
Tom Curran will become the second English cricketer to play for Sydney Sixers. Previously, Joe Denly has signed for them, who did exceptionally well in both departments of the game.
Speaking of the signing, the youngster admitted that he is delighted to join the franchise. Further, he is also hopeful that he would come good for Sydney.
“I’m absolutely delighted to be joining the Sydney Sixers for the 2018-19 Big Bash,” Curran said on Tuesday (December 4). “Friends and colleagues have told me what a great team environment it is and how passionate the fans are and I’m hugely excited to experience this all for myself. I can’t wait to get to Sydney and hopefully help the team have a great season.”
Meanwhile, this is Curran’s first appearance in Australia’s premier T20 competition. He was due to play in the 2017/18 edition of BBL for Tasmanian side Hobart Hurricanes but pulled out of the tournament after being called into England’s Ashes squad.
