WATCH: Sam Curran Bats With Sunglasses On During WI vs ENG 1st ODI, Video Viral


Sam Curran had a forgettable outing with the ball during England’s first ODI against West Indies at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua on December 3 (Sunday). The Three Lions’ left-handed all-rounder bowled 9.5 overs and gave away 98 runs in 9.5 overs without managing to take a single wicket. Curran’s bowling figures meant the visitors were unable to chase down 325, a total which they had posted after batting first. West Indies ended up winning the match by 4 wickets and 7 balls remaining.

Curran may have had a match to forget as far as his bowling performance is concerned, with the bat he did manage to score 38 off 26 to help England post a formidable total. However, what attracted the attention of the netizens was Curran coming out to bat with his sunglasses on, something which fans don’t get to see often. Video of Curran batting with the sunglasess on has gone viral on social media.
