Sam Curran set to play floater strategy on his batting position

Prior to the T20I series in Pakistan and the impending T20 World Cup in Australia, England all-rounder Sam Curran stated that he is prepared to play in a variety of roles and as a floater.

Curran, incidentally, batted at top for both Oval Invincibles in the Hundred and Surrey in the Blast. Curran, however, might probably be utilised as a finisher because England has enough options for the top order places.

“I’m trying to be as adaptable as possible. I’m sure there’s going to be a lot of rotation: guys coming back from injury, newer guys coming in. My role might vary as guys come back or guys come in. The role I’m given is just to contribute with the ball when I bowl and when I’m batting,” Curran said in the presser.

“That may be lower down the order here but I guess it’s about adapting to conditions. I don’t think about it too much at Surrey or in the Hundred because I had pretty set roles but with England, naturally I do because we’ve got so many allrounders who can be adaptable. I might get sent up as a floater to take on different types of bowlers. Whenever I do play for England, I play with an open mind. You don’t just want to be a cricketer whose set for one role which I think is one of my strengths: to be as adaptable [as possible] for the captain and for guys in the team,” he added.
