English fast bowler Sam Curran has been outstanding throughout the T20 World Cup 2022. He conceded only 12 runs in the final and bagged three wickets against Pakistan that helped England to put pressure on Pakistan early on.
Curran has been awarded the player of the final, but while receiving the award, he said Ben Stokes deserves it more.
“I don't think I should be getting this,” Curran said. “I think Ben Stokes should get this.”
Curran, the left-arm pacer, ended up taking 13 wickets in six matches. He has also been awarded the player of the tournament. His bowling was one of the highlights of this T20 World Cup.
“The big square boundaries, so I knew my bowling would work with big boundaries. I mixed it up with slower balls to make it tough for the batter. Incredibly special (to win the World Cup,” Curran added. “We all look up to him (Stokes). People question him (about the final of 2016) but he's incredible.”
Allrounder Stokes scored an unbeaten 52 and scored the winning run for England. He failed to defend 24 runs in the final of the 2016 World Cup in Kolkata. After six years, he is the hero of England’s victorious World Cup campaign.
England are now the champions of both white-ball World Cups— the 50-over and T20Is. They are the first team to achieve such a fate.
