Tom Curran is a South African-born English cricketer who currently represents England in One Day Internationals and Test Matches. He also plays domestically for Surrey CCC. Following an incredible year, Tom has gone on to represent England in all formats of the game and now has become one of the most talked about and exciting professional sportsman in the UK.
After breaking into the England men’s senior squad in 2017 with 3 wickets on his T20 debut, Tom was called up to the England Ashes squad later that year. He walked away with a wicket in his first game at the MCG Stadium in front of 100,000 fans – an incredible achievement to reach such a pinnacle of his career at his age. His global profile increased after participating in the 2018 IPL and has since received interest from other franchise leagues around the world. He has continued to grow from strength to strength as an allrounder and was named in the 2019 Cricket World Cup team for England.
Prior to his England debut, Tom was scouted whilst playing school cricket in South Africa. Ian Greig, the former Surry Captain spotted his talent and invited him to play for the Surrey Second XI in 2012. After much success in his initial year, Tom made his senior appearance in 2013 against Cambridge University. In 2015 Tom was selected for the prestigious England Performance Program where he completed his necessary qualifications and honed his talents.
Tom has been honored for his incredible talents and contributions to England’s cricket scene. In 2015 he was awarded the Cricket Writers’ Club Youg Cricketer of the Year. This award was largely down to his impressive statistics across three competitions, achieving 105 wickets. In 2019 he joined the Australia Big Bash League for a winter in Sydney, where he was named as the Sixer’s Player of the Tournament.
Regarded as a powerful allrounder, Tom has become a global success. Traveling worldwide as a young professional athlete, he has definitely made his mark on the industry. As speaker, he is as focused as he is in the game when he recalls his journey to the top and inspires others with his ambition.
