Sam Curran: Sam Curran is an England allrounder who plays for CSK in the IPL. On the face of it, he doesn’t seem much of a seam bowler. Without great pace or height, or even the vicious swing that some of his compatriots get, Curran still manages to make an impact. He did just that in the two seasons of IPL that he has played so far. 23 wickets in 23 matches is not a bad effort for a bowler of his type in Indian conditions. What makes him even more valuable is his batting ability. An average of 23.41 suggests a very capable lower-order batsman who can also hit boundaries towards the end of an innings.

What makes the left-arm seamer handy is what cricket experts often describe as ‘a big heart.’ His ability to swing the ball early as well as to seam it off the wicket can prove to be a big asset for MS Dhoni in certain conditions. He is a typical example of a player who somehow manages to punch above his weight.
