Speaking on the Vaughany and Tuffers Cricket Club podcast, Sam Curran talked about the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2023 mini-auction.
“I’ll be watching on the TV on Friday morning, I guess. And then when your name comes up, you’re like keep the paddle up mate,” said Curran.
“Firstly, you’ve got to get picked. I’ve got, obviously, hope that I’ll go somewhere. But I guess that’s one of those things (that) I’m in the same bracket as (Ben) Stokes and a few other all-rounders, who have come out and I guess they work in sets. So, anything can happen,” Sam Curran added.

In Pakistan, Jos actually invited me to his room for like a chat – Sam Curran
Sam Curran also talked about how England white-ball captain Jos Buttler has shown immense faith shown in him.
“In Pakistan, Jos actually invited me to his room for like a chat. He was basically, like, ‘You know, you’re going to open how do you feel bowling in these scenarios? I really back you.’ It was more that he wanted me to bowl in all three phases. Previously, I was probably more of a new-ball bowler,” Curran said.
“Moeen and Jos mostly would probably be saying, ‘Okay, if you’re confident now, we are backing you all the way. I’m a massive believer in going on gut feel and gut instinct,” he said.
