Curry for Curran?

Sam Curran's stunning emergence for England this summer has attracted a raft of interest among the IPL's cash-rich teams.

A number of franchises – including Virat Kohli's Royal Challengers Bangalore – are understood to have flagged up the 20-year-old as a possible target for 2019, in keeping with the recent trend that match-winning performances against India count for more. All-rounders are viewed as precious commodities among the IPL teams too.

Curran has shown himself to be a steely batsman in high pressure situations – his two half-centuries this series have rescued England at Edgbaston and the Ageas Bowl – while the left-arm angle of his swing bowling offers a lot as well.
