England cricketer, Sam Curran spoke about facing India. The left-arm seamer remarked that he still remembers his previous series versus India, which gives him a great deal of confidence. Curran stated that he hopes to repeat his past series’ results and thinks the Indian team is a good one.
“With the Indian side coming over, naturally I’ll have that [2018 series] at the back of my mind. Thinking about how that series went gives me great confidence going into Trent Bridge. I haven’t played much Test cricket in the last six months, so it’s exciting for me to hopefully try and replicate 2018. India is a fantastic side, so I’m sure it’s going to be a fantastic series,” said Curran in the post-day press conference.
Naturally, anything that goes well gives you confidence: Sam Curran
After his past exploits versus India, Sam Curran expressed his confidence in his skills. He also added that if a player can do well with a world-class team like India, it gives them confidence in how they can execute well against star players.
“Looking back on it, it gives you great confidence when you perform against that type of opposition. For me, there’s no better feeling. I always look back on that, thinking, yes, I can perform at this level. Naturally, anything that goes well gives you confidence, so it’s definitely been good and probably helped my game across all formats. It gives you the belief that you can perform against high-quality players,” added Curran.
Sam Curran also discussed the 2018 Edgbaston Test match versus India. The England cricketer claimed that the Edgbaston Test match is his favorite and that he is pleased with the manner from both batting and bowling in that match. Finally, the 23-year-old stated that he had pleasant recollections of performing at Edgbaston.
“That Edgbaston Test was my favorite, the way we won that game on the last day, the last session, where it could have gone either way. I think we needed four-five wickets. And yeah, the way I batted, the way I bowled. The whole atmosphere at that stadium – it was my first experience of Edgbaston, so great memories,” concluded Curran.
