Sam Curran’s present net worth leaves him some way down the list of the world’s richest cricketers but there are clear signs that he is destined to get up among the elite. At the age of just 22, he’s showing great promise as an all rounder and is already making his mark on global competitions.

The English all rounder has attracted big money deals in the Indian Premier League. The IPL is the richest tournament in the sport and that’s why Curran has plenty of time to join the list of major earners.

What’s he Worth?

Current estimates indicate that Sam Curran’s net worth currently stands at a modest $3 million USD. He will have earned that sum via his English county Surrey and a number of international appearances in test and limited overs formats. 

A significant boost to that figure will have come through his IPL deals. Curran has played for three seasons in the Indian Premier League, initially for Kings XI Punjab in 2019. A switch to Chennai followed a year later and he’s been an important member of the Super Kings squad ever since. 

Curran was initially signed by Punjab for $1 million USD in 2019 but, after a relatively disappointing tournament, he wasn’t retained by the franchise. Chennai subsequently paid around $750,000 for his services in 2020 and, since then, he’s been a far more effective player.

Those wages and sign on fees will continue to rise but, like all good sportsmen, Sam Curran’s focus remains firmly on the field of play.

Sam Curran’s Next Challenges

Chennai Super Kings’ skipper MS Dhoni is a big fan of Sam Curran’s and he tends to rely on his bowler to deliver the crucial overs at the end of an innings. As an all-rounder, he can also be devastating with the bat and he therefore offers a great package to CSK.

When the 2021 edition of the Indian Premier League was initially suspended, Chennai were in a strong position in the table with five wins from their opening seven matches. The organisers of the tournament are tentatively planning for the IPL to resume just ahead of the T20 World Cup in October. When markets reopen, US betting sites attached to will list the Super Kings among the favourites along with the likes of Delhi Capitals, Mumbai Indians and the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

As and when the tournament picks up again, the odds will adjust and will be standing by to update every movement. The United States isn’t covered by every bookmaker but the website will also list operators that accept customers from North America. In some cases, welcome offers and promotions will also be listed.

Chennai will be a popular pick among the betting community but, if they are to convert, Sam Curran will need to play a big part in their remaining matches.

Rising Stock

Sam Curran is also proving to be an indispensable part of England’s limited overs sides. After some strong early performances for Surrey as a teenager, he made his international debut in a test match against Pakistan in June 2018. In the same month, he played in his first ODI while a T20 debut came along a year later.

It’s fair to say that Curran hasn’t been a permanent fixture in any of the three national sides since then but it’s likely that he’ll be a regular member of the limited overs Starting XIs in the near future.

He’s still very young but a stunning innings for England against India early in 2021 saw Sam Curran come of age. As his side chased a lost cause, the left hander blasted an undefeated 95 with the bat and that was almost enough to get England over the line.

Sam Curran has been seen as a brilliant prospect for some time but he truly ‘arrived’ with that incredible innings. With the T20 World Cup coming up later in 2021, he is going to be an important player if England are to do the ‘double’ and add to their 50 Over title from 2019.

If he has time in his schedule, Curran will also feature for many T20 franchises and, as one of cricket’s hottest young properties, he has plenty of time to make it onto that ‘rich list.’
