He played a solid knock at Edgbaston and picked a fifer to take the man of the match and then followed it up with an excellent 40 at Lords. Though he got dropped at Trentbridge, his return at Southampton gave a series victory for England.

During the course, Sam Curran impressed the franchises of IPL, who would be keen to sign him. The youngster’s brother, Tom Curran played for Kolkata Knight Riders in the 2018 edition of IPL.

However, the addition of Sam will be a top-notch inclusion for any franchise. Having a left-handed all-rounder is always a great option for the team. Probably, a big fat cheque is waiting for Sam Curran.
