Sam Curran: I think is one of my strengths: to be as adaptable

England all-rounder Sam Curran is ready to help the team at any time before the T20I series and the T20 World Cup. He is ready to play in any position because it will mean a great help for the team. Curran believes that this is also his greatest strength; adaptability.

He adapts quickly and can play in different positions. The most important thing is that you want to make sacrifices for the team. "I'm trying to be as adaptable as possible. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of rotation: guys coming back from injury, newer guys coming in.

My role might vary as guys come back or guys come in. The role I'm given is just to contribute with the ball when I bowl and when I'm batting," Curran said in the presser as quoted by cricbuzz. "That may be lower down the order here but I guess it's about adapting to conditions.

I don't think about it too much at Surrey or in the Hundred because I had pretty set roles but with England, naturally I do because we've got so many allrounders who can be adaptable. I might get sent up as a floater to take on different types of bowlers.

Whenever I do play for England, I play with an open mind. You don't just want to be a cricketer whose set for one role which I think is one of my strengths: to be as adaptable [as possible] for the captain and for guys in the team," he added.

Previous T20 WC

He could not play in the previous T20 World Cup due to injury. "I missed the last one. I need to get through this series and then hopefully, when I'm in Australia, I can be excited about it. The biggest thing this summer was getting my body through it...

the priority now is the World Cup.I didn't bowl much for Surrey at all. The most I bowled in a game was 20 overs [24] and it felt like the sensible option. The Test team were flying at the time so my focus was purely on the World Cup and trying to have a good Hundred, to keep performing and to get my body right."

The next match is against Pakistan, and Curran recalled certain moments. Most of the Pakistan guys I know,. I played against a few of them at the Under-19 World Cup, like Shadab [Khan]. He's a fantastic player. This is a great chance for myself and most of our players - even guys that aren't in the World Cup squad - to stake a claim, keep knocking down the door; but also just to be here, be involved with a pretty historic trip to Pakistan and take it all in."
