England in India 2020-21 – Sam Curran out of India Tests due to difficulties in travelling to Ahmedabad solo

News

Allrounder will fly out along with white-ball players ahead of next month’s T20I series

Sam Curran has been ruled out of the remainder of England’s Test series in India due to the logistical difficulties of travelling solo during the Covid-19 pandemic. Instead he will now rejoin the squad on February 26, midway through the third Test, along with the rest of England’s white-ball players ahead of the five T20I series in March.

Curran played in both of England’s Tests against Sri Lanka last month, claiming three wickets at 38.00 in the 2-0 series win. However, instead of then flying on to Chennai for the first Two Tests against India, he returned home alongside his fellow multi-format players, Jonny Bairstow and Mark Wood, for a pre-arranged break from the team’s biosecure bubble.

Bairstow and Wood have now returned to training following their quarantine period, and expect to be available for selection when the third Test gets underway in Ahmedabad next week. Curran, however, was granted an extended break, given that he had been in locked-down environments since the start of the England Test summer in July, including his stint with Chennai Super Kings at the IPL.
