Not only Sam Curran shares his birthday with the legend Wasim Akram, 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.


The ECB recognized the talent and handed him 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 has cricket in his blood. His father Kevin Curran played for Zimbabwe while his older brother Tom is also a regular in the English domestic circuit.
