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?
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
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 sbo.net 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 sbo.net 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.
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
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
