The IPL 2020 auction got over on Wednesday and there were many surprise bids. However, during the press conference, the franchise owners spoke about their buys and one of the best buys in the auction was undoubtedly Sam Curran.
The 21-year-old England cricketer will be playing for CSK in the next edition of the IPL and the youngster is already excited.
“Can’t wait to come to Chennai and meet all my new teammates, playing under MS Dhoni our captain and our coach Stephen Fleming. It’s obviously going to be a great opportunity for me to pick their brains and, hopefully, we can bring the trophy home to Chennai,” Curran said in a video uploaded by his new franchise.
“Super excited to be joining the Chennai Super Kings for next season of IPL. A massive thank you to the coach, management staff.
“Just want to say I can’t wait to play in front of the home fans in Chennai. I felt some amazing things, I was lucky enough to play last year against Chennai, and to play in front of the home fans this year is going to be really special. Hopefully, we can put in some great performances for the fans,” he signed off.
