Curran missed three weeks of work in January 2022 due to a stress fracture in his back. Throughout the whole year, Curran played only for England, and he didn’t return to representing his country until July 2021. Even though Curran, 27, played First-Class cricket for Surrey later in 2022 and even represented Oval Invincibles in the T20 Blast, he was unable to make the England team.
However, Tom Curran’s participation with the United Arab Emirates’ Desert Vipers in the DP World International League T20 marked a more important comeback to cricket action this year.He scored 150 runs and took 12 wickets in 11 games, which enabled Vipers to get to the tournament’s final where they were beaten by Gulf Giants. However, Curran feels revitalised and thinks his situation has improved significantly since he started playing cricket again this year.
In an interview with Hindustan Times, Tom Curran emphasised the significance of occasions like ILT20 for him at this point in his career. Even if he isn’t considering it just now, the England great obviously has a return to the international stage in mind.
“Each and every cricket matters. Both the stress fracture and the desperately needed break happened simultaneously. You go by waggon and play a lot of cricket.
“The Desert Vipers are a fantastic bunch, and I had a great time with them. The coaching and management teams have excelled. At this time, achieving that is my goal. I won’t lie; I’m not thinking about making a comeback to international cricket right now. I just want to have fun playing cricket and have a fulfilling life.
Sam Curran, Tom Curran’s younger brother, continued to create news in the world of cricket while Tom Curran remained sidelined. In December of last year, Sam shattered the previous record for the highest bid in IPL auction history when Punjab Kings signed Curran for a staggering INR 18.5 crore. Curran Senior, on the other hand, failed to find a bidder at the auction.
There are many more leagues now. IPL remains and has been without a doubt the finest for a time. But it’s also challenging. There are multiple leagues going on right now with very strict requirements. Curran proclaims with confidence, “I just want to give it my all and perform for my team, regardless of the league.”
