Sam Curran wants to highlight that he is impressive every time he plays for England considering fast bowling resources with months left before the World Cup.
The tournament and final player of last year’s T20 World Cup starred against Bangladesh and set the marker for inclusion in England’s squad for their 50-over title defense in India.
He was overlooked in the first ODI, but cameo 33 off 19 balls in the second before blowing the wind out of Bangladesh’s sails with three wickets in five deliveries.
Karan eventually finished 29-4 in Dhaka, claiming he felt no pressure to perform, but believes his left-hander Seamer needs to keep pushing to stay in contention.
“We have a quality team at the moment,” he said. “Some of them are back on the Test Tour. Every time I play for the team and for England, I want to perform.
“We have a great team now that Jofra[Archer][Chris]Walks and[Mark]Wood are back. We are delighted to see the quality of the bowlers around us.
“It’s been a great time and hopefully we can all stay healthy and make some good decisions with our captains and coaches. As bowlers, we just want to play in the World Cup.
“I think we have a great team here and the World Cup will only give me confidence. ”
Karan, whose only experience in Bangladesh was at the 2016 U-19 World Cup, was destined to take advantage of his early swing to trail the Tigers 9-3 and follow a 327 fortune on Friday. 2-0 lead with one game remaining.
Despite not being particularly tall or producing a fast pace, Curran continues to excel in international cricket and attributes his success to his keen instincts and clever skill set.
“I don’t think much about it, to be honest,” Curran said. “You have a natural plan and I like to react to what’s in front of me. I’m not a big planner, to see what’s in front of me.
“But it’s just reacting. If my cutters are working, I’ll stick with them, but[on Friday]there was a new ball swinging, so we played as you can see.
“It helps when you see them throw the ball first and you can pretty much mimic what they do.
“The closer we get to the World Cup, the more we try to improve with each match.”
England headed to Chattogram (formerly Chittagong) on Saturday, where the Bangladesh government officially renamed the city in 2018.
This means England’s final ODI until September, when the World Cup squad is about to be announced, but Curran wants other ways to make his case, such as the Indian Premier League. .
Kallang, the most expensive auction in IPL history, was sold for £1.85m by the Punjab Kings in December and is set to head to India after a Bangladesh tour of England.
“It’s another chance to play cricket in India and it’s great,” he added. “It’s a great preparation for the World Cup and I hope I can (hopefully) perform well for the team.”
