Tom Curran also present in IPL
Meanwhile, Tom Curran, brother of Sam Curran, has not got a chance to play for Rajasthan Royals in the second phase of the IPL. However, in ‘The Hundred’, he performed brilliantly for the Oval Invincible, taking 10 wickets in 8 matches.
When Sam had stopped Team India’s breath
In the last ODI of the series played between India and England (IND vs ENG) in Pune, Team India’s breath was stopped by playing an innings of 95 runs in 83 balls. He remained unbeaten till the end but could not get England to win. Had Sam played the World Cup, he could have become a big threat to India.
You gave your all @CurranSM
An incredible effort.
India win by 7 runs.
