Sam Curran of England was recognized as the ICC T20 World Cup 2022’s Player of the Tournament due to his outstanding performance throughout the competition.

Sam Curran, who is only 24 years old and throws left-handed, had an outstanding World Cup, and the performance that earned him Player of the Final against Pakistan also earned him the ICC’s Player of the Tournament award.

Due to injury, Sam Curran was unable to participate in the 2021 tournament, but he still managed to make a significant contribution to England’s pursuit of the trophy. He emerged as a key bowler in the death overs and was a useful wicket-taker for Jos Buttler’s side.

At the end of the World Cup, Sam Curran was second only to Sri Lanka’s Wanindu Hasaranga in terms of the number of wickets he took

He concluded the competition with an economy rate of 6.52, which was the best among all of England’s speed bowlers, and he got his wickets at an average of 11.38, which placed him ninth among all bowlers at the competition.

The fact that England chose to utilize Sam Curran toward the close of an innings or during the Powerplay makes his statistics look even better than they are. The bulk of Sam Curran’s overs were either bowled at the end of an innings or during the Powerplay.

The bowler from England was successful because he made strategic use of variations, paired those variations with a challenging angle, and consistently put his skills into practice.

Curran, who played an important role in his team’s success at the MCG final, explained his bowling style by saying, “The way I bowl, I go into the wicket with my slower deliveries and keep the batsmen guessing.” “World Champions! That’s fantastic!”

Curran was selected as the Player of the Tournament based on both the opinions of a panel of judges and those of fans who participated in an online vote. This victory allowed him to beat off a number of other competitors who had impressive performances during the tournament.

Other players who were considered for the awards include Curran’s countrymen Jos Buttler and Alex Hales, as well as Shaheen Afridi, Shadab Khan, Virat Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav, Sikandar Raza, and Wanindu Hasaranga. Wanindu Hasaranga and Shadab Khan were also considered for the honors.
