“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.

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.
