Sam Curran cricketer

Some of the most powerful and professional cricketers in the world live in England. Even among very young players, there are outstanding names, and one of them is Sam Curran (full name – Samuel Matthew Curran). The athlete plays for the English Surrey County Cricket Club and the Indian Chennai Super Kings (as of 2021). He is also part of the England cricket national team.

Sam Curran was born on June 3, 1998 in Northampton, Northamptonshire, England. However, as you know, the future athlete grew up on a family farm in the city of Rusapa, Zimbabwe. True, the family had to leave the farm as a result of land reform in 2004. Sam Curran was educated at Springvale House, Marondera, St. George’s College, Harare, and Berkshire’s Wellington College. We can say that Sam’s fate was decided at birth: fans of the sport who are well acquainted with cricket probably know his father – Kevin Malcolm Curran, a former international cricketer in the Zimbabwe national team. Sam is also the brother of famous cricketers Tom and Ben Carran. In addition, even his grandfather, Kevin Patrick Curran, was a cricketer. With such a pedigree and such brothers, it is not surprising that Sam chose this particular path in life.

Sam Curran does not hide his personal life. He meets Isabella Symonds-Willmott and regularly posts photos with her on his Instagram page. Isabella, by the way, also posts a photo with the athlete. Whether they are going to get married (or already married) is not reported, but judging by how young people like to spend time together, everything in their relationship is excellent.
