New Delhi. IPL auction was organized in the month of December. During this, all-rounders dominated the most. England team’s star all-rounder Sam Curran got the biggest deal in the history of IPL. The Punjab Kings franchise added him to their team by spending Rs 18.5 crore. On one hand, it rained notes on Sam Curran. At the same time, no franchise bought his brother Tom Curran even for the base price of Rs 75 lakh. In terms of performance, Tom Curran is also considered a top class all-rounder.
Unhappy with not being bought by any team, this all-rounder has taken a huge step in his career. Tom Curran has suddenly announced that he is taking an indefinite break from red ball cricket ie Test cricket. He will no longer be seen playing red ball cricket for his home team Surrey. Tom Curran has taken this big step understanding his physical and mental condition. He is currently playing in the International League T20 in UAE.
Tom Curran played his last Test match for the England team in the year 2018. During the Sydney Test, he scored 39 and 23 in two innings and also took a wicket. Since then, he is not fed in the longest format of the game.
During a conversation with Surrey’s website, Tom Curran said, “The last few years have not been good for me. Some decisions in life are like that, I think you are never 100 percent sure while taking them. This decision of mine is one of them. I think it is important for my physical and mental health.”
