Profile

Tom Curran is a South African-born English cricketer who represents Surrey in County cricket. His father was a former Zimbabwe International cricketer and his younger brother Sam Curran is also a regular member of the English Test team.


With impressive performance at the school level, in 2012, Tom got a chance to represent the Surrey second XI. With the skill-set and the talent that he had, Tom had the ability to consistently clock 140-plus kph away swinging deliveries. With pace to his fore, Tom Curran finally got selected in the England performance squad in September 2015 and in the next month, he completed his residential qualification for England.


Tom Curran has grown a lot and has a handy experience of more than 50 first-class games. He has matured with time and turned out to be a high-class performer. With the amount of domestic exposure that he had, in June 2017, Curran was finally drafted into the England national side for a T20I series against South Africa. His debut match was decent enough and everyone got impressed with his pace and guile.


Due to injuries to the preferred fast bowlers in the Test format, Tom Curran was selected for the 2017-18 Ashes and he also made his debut in Melbourne. Being a bowling all-rounder, although Tom did not find much success in the red-ball format, his ability to swing the ball and also contribute with the bat kept him in contention for the white-ball format. Believing in Curran's ability, England named him in their 2019 Cricket World Cup squad. 


Tom Curran was earlier a part of the Kolkata franchise where he replaced the injured Mitchell Johnson in 2018 but ahead of the 13th edition of the Indian T20 League, Rajasthan bought the quality English all-rounder for INR 1 crore. After a dismal season with them, Tom was released from the squad and Delhi bagged him for 2021.
