ENG vs NZ: England allrounder Sam Curran has his eyes set on returning to the “exciting” Test squad. He missed the T20 World Cup and the Ashes due to a stress fracture.

The 24-year-old has played 24 Tests for England, scoring 815 runs and taking 47 wickets, with his most recent appearance coming in August 2021 against India.

“It was massively exciting to watch them, a fantastic win and a game that had everything,”Curran said to PA news agency

ENG vs NZ: “My style of play will suit the current leadership,” Curran
He is sure to be on the radar as a left-arm swing bowler whose propensity for breezy hitting could bolster a light lower order. The 24-year-old is confident about his return to the Test team as he feels the style of play will suit the current leadership group.
“There will be no backward steps under Ben and that’s the way I like to play too. Hopefully it’s the start of a successful Test summer for the guys and, hopefully, I’ll be back around the group,”Curran added
Curran said that he has grown up watching the English skipper play and is confident that Stokes will bring about a positive change in the England Test setup.
Curran’s next major test will be a three-match series against the Netherlands, where he will begin working with Brendon McCullum’s limited-overs counterpart Matthew Mott. The youngster hopes to play a major part with the ball and increase his workload from a maximum of four overs in the Vitality Blast to a full complement of ten.
“My main focus is to get back to the Test match set-up, but I’m taking it a week at a time and making sure I don’t look too far ahead.”he signed off
