Sam Curran is considered as a great asset mainly because of his all round skills. His left arm angle is something that comes into play when one talks about his bowling. He is also a handy lower order batsman who has the ability to smash sixes.
The England all rounder is playing for Chennai Super Kings in the Indian Premier League in UAE where the WT20 is going to take place. He suffered an injury while playing the game against Rajasthan Royals in Abu Dhabi which has ruled him out of the remainder of the IPL along with WT20.
Sam Curran came in as replacement for Dwayne Bravo in the 12th league game for Chennai Super Kings. This was Sam Curran’s second game in the 2nd leg and he didn’t have a great first game against KKR where he gave 56 runs in his 4 overs.
He was taken to cleaners in the game against Rajasthan Royals as well where he gave away 55 runs without picking up a wicket in his 4 overs. While bowling the last over of his spell, he was hit by the ball that was traveling towards him and he fell down immediately. He was given medical attention after the game and an ECB release said that,
Results of the scan revealed the injury. He will fly back to the UK in the next couple of days and will have further scans and a full review later this week from the ECB’s medical team
Tom Curran, the elder brother of Sam Curran who was in the reserves for the WT20 squad will now join the main squad replacing his brother Sam Curran. Though Tom Curran is a downgrade to Sam Curran, the wickets in UAE might suit Tom Curran’s style of play. England already have a like for like replacement for Sam Curran in the form of David Willey in their main squad who is a much better T20 package when compared to Sam Curran.
