Every day, you go down for breakfast and you’re sitting with superstars, chatting about the game. Curran experience back pain during CSK’s loss to the Rajasthan Royals in October. Scans later reveal that he suffer a stress fracture of the lower back, ruling him out of the T20 World Cup and the Ashes.

“It’s been a long and cold winter. I’d never really had an injury before, and missing out on what I have has been difficult. As a player, the two most important series or tournaments are probably the World Cup for your country and the Ashes series in Australia “He stated.
“…it’s all about getting started in these first six Championship games and putting in performances for myself and Surrey. My initial goal is to play in the June Test matches, and my ultimate goal is likely to be to compete in the World Cup.”
