Sam Curran, the young seaming all-rounder from England was bought by Chennai Super Kings in IPL 2020 auction. The 21-year-old has shown his excitement to play alongside some high profile players like MS Dhoni in a live Instagram session with CSK. Meanwhile, he also expects things to come back to its usual state so that the league can be organized in the latter part of the year.
The 21-year-old all-rounder has become a regular face of the England Cricket team in the last 12 months. In IPL 2019, he was bought by Kings XI Punjab after paying a whopping fee of INR 7.20 Cr. But, he failed to impress the franchise with his performances. So, they released him into the auction pool. And, in the IPL 2020 auction, CSK bought him at a whopping amount of INR 5.5 Cr.
Curran was all set to join Chennai Super Kings camp after playing Test series for England against Sri Lanka. But, suddenly things changed and the league got postponed due to coronavirus outbreak.
