Sam Curran reckoned that his experience of playing different roles in the IPL is going to help him in the forthcoming T20 series against India. The English all-rounder featured in all 14 games for CSK in the IPL 2020. He was one of the crucial players for the former IPL champions. Sam Curran gave a remarkable performance as an all-rounder for an underwhelming CSK team in 2020.

The 22-year-old turned out to be a hero for the "Yellow Army" when they seemed pretty unfortunate in the UAE and finished second from bottom. They could manage just six wins in the entire season. This was the first time CSK failed to qualify for the playoffs. Despite this, Sam Curran had a fantastic season, picking up 13 wickets during the tournament.

The 14th season of IPL will be crucial for players to become familiar with the conditions: Sam Curran

Sam Curran is one of the multi-format England players who have been given time off since January. The youngster headed back home after playing two Tests in Sri Lanka. He had initially been due to return in time to be considered for the fourth and final Test against India. However, he faced difficulties in making the travel alone due to considerations around social distancing and Covid-19.

IPL is returning back to India. The young all-rounder feels like this season will be crucial for players to become familiar with the conditions. Curran pointed out that IPL made him a much better player as he got to play different roles and got challenged in many different ways. The youngster feels that the upcoming edition of the IPL will help him fix his spot in England playing XI.

India and England will battle in five T20I matches at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Ahmedabad, on March 12, 14, 16, 18, and 20. The T20I series will then be followed by a 3-match ODI series. All the games will take place at the MCA Stadium in Pune from March 23.
