Sam Curran, an England pacer, is thriving. Once Punjab Kings purchased him for Rs 18.50 crore at the mini-auction on Friday, he became the most expensive purchase in the history of the Indian Premier League (IPL).
His return to Punjab Kings, where he made his IPL debut in 2019, will also be marked by this.
Initially, a shocked Curran stated that he never had any aspirations to receive that agreement.
Sam Curran told had a restless night last night due to excitement and worry about the outcome of the auction. I’m utterly humbled and overwhelmed that I was able to achieve what I did, though.
Curran aims to justify his high asking price in the IPL 2023 after having a fantastic World Cup with England.
The stadium is one I am familiar with. Having certain colleagues that I am familiar with who will support me and who I know very well in Mohali surely gives me a slight advantage.
And yes, having just had an incredible world cup, I feel confident heading into this competition. Oh yes, it’s wonderful; I’m really incredibly thrilled about going to India in the future months.
He concluded. With 13 wickets, Curran won the T20 World Cup in Australia’s Player of the Tournament award. He will play for Punjab Kings alongside fellow Englishmen Jonny Bairstow and Liam Livingstone.
The 24-year-old paceman described his return to the Punjab club as going back to where it all started for me in the IPL with Punjab, where I made my debut four years ago. Hence, returning there seems wonderful, and I can’t wait to join some of my English comrades.
