The build-up to the 2019 edition of the IPL has already begun. With the announcement of the list of players for the auctions this year being made, the eyes are now set for the marquee auction on December 18. As many as 9 players have set their base price at INR 2 crore, the highest base price bracket. Among them is a name that is merely 20 years old. And that name is of Sam Curran.

The young English all-rounder has been a brilliant find for the English national side. In a very short span of time, Sam Curran has made a big name for himself. He did a world of good to his reputation during the India tour of England earlier this year. Not only did he impress with the ball in hand, he also proved to be handy with the bat, taking games away from India almost singlehandedly on a couple of occasions.

His brilliance with the bat and the ball had the Indian skipper Virat Kohli shower praises on the young lad as well.

“They have guys who are fearless down the order, they back their skills, they were braver in tough situations than us, they were more confident about what they wanted to do in tough situations, and that’s why they won this Test match,” Kohli had said after the Test series in England.

“Those contributions lower down the order have been significant as far as this Test goes and the one Birmingham as well. I would like to congratulate Sam Curran. He has been a nice find for England,” he had added further.

Needless to concede, the Twitterverse is already thinking that the Royal Challengers Bangalore camp could go hard at the auctions to buy Sam Curran. Virat Kohli would certainly be interested in having him on the roster. Interestingly, the English cricketers have always been a fancied property at the IPL auctions – be it Andrew Flintoff and Kevin Pietersen in the early editions of the tournament, or be it Ben Stokes in the recent times.

Here is how the fans showed interest in watching Sam Curran play for RCB:
