Tom Curran hopes to secure place in England squad

Dubai: Following his success in Big Bash League (BBL), fast bowler Tom Curran hopes to secure a place in England’s World Cup squad. Having the fast-bowling likes of Liam Plunkett, Mark Wood, Chris Woakes and David Willey all in contention for a spot in the 15-man squad, Curran is aware of the need to impress and to prove that he picked up 20 wickets from 14 matches at 19.85 for Sydney Sixers in the BBL.

“It (BBL) helps to play in those big franchise tournaments. It is the biggest stage apart from international cricket, so to go there and do well gives me confidence. Hopefully, from that I can put in some good performances here, and get in that World Cup squad,” ICC quoted Curran, as saying.
