The England cricket team won a thrilling encounter against Pakistan and were crowned the new T20 world champions. Sam Curran, the rambunctious all-rounder went wild as he was not only the player of the match, but also the player of the tournament for his 13 wickets in the tournament.
England showed a lot of courage and determination during the tournament as it was not easy to beat Pakistan. The Men in Green nearly carried out a robbery and would lament the fact that they were quite average when hitting. The team managed to score 137 runs under par, which kept them behind the 8th ball.
Sam Curran on IPL
Sam Curran was asked about IPL and he made some interesting comments about it. “I enjoyed my time there. Learned a lot from these guys. It’s great to learn from guys who have played in these tournaments and big occasions. I always try to keep learning and improving. Who knows, hopefully I’ll be back in IPL. “It was a good pitch, both challenged and batters, we are happy with the win.” said Curran.
Sam Curran invaluable
Sam Curran was not guaranteed a place in the squad as England had many players waiting in the dugout. The all-rounder showed great control over line and length and it wouldn’t be wrong to say that England have found a gem of a player who can bowl at all stages of the match. The special thing about Sam Curran is that he is quite disciplined in his approach because he hardly gives freebies.
Skipper Jos Buttler didn’t look like he captained the ICC event for the first time. He was the bowler’s mind, as he didn’t panic even after losing to Ireland. England showed to the World Cricket why their Cricket brand is sustainable and prolific and it seems that this is the beginning of the English era as winning 2 titles in the span of 3 years is quite remarkable in the modern era.
