Not only Sam Curran shares his birthday with the legend Wasim Akram, but he has also shown the same qualities with the ball at a very young age. The left-arm Surrey speedster got the ability to bring the ball back into the right-hander and is considered to be a child prodigy. He made an excellent Championship debut against Kent, at only 17 and didn't take much time to impress one and all with his skills. Sam has cricket in his blood. His father Kevin Curran played for Zimbabwe while his older brother Tom is also a regular for England in the shorter versions.

The ECB recognized the talent and handed Sam Curran his first Test cap when he made his debut against Pakistan at Headingley in June 2018. Two months later, in only his second Test match, he bagged the Man of the Match award for his all-round display against India. In a spell of great swing bowling, he ran through the Indian top order and later orchestrated his batting prowess by scoring vital runs, which eventually proved to be the differential factor.

Sam was adjudged the Player of the Series against India as he played a vital part in the series win. When you have such an amazing start, it rarely goes unnoticed. Curran was bought by the Kings XI Punjab in the 2019 Indian T20 League auction for a surprising 7.2 crore rupees. He took a hat-trick in the second match of the tournament itself and made his mark.
