An amazing game happened with the brothers in IPL 2024, the younger brother is captaining, the elder does not even have a place in the playing XI.


New Delhi. Be it Irfan Pathan-Yusuf Pathan or Hardik Pandya-Krunal Pandya… it has been a different thrill to see brothers playing together in cricket. Even if they play together and even if they are face to face. There are two pairs of brothers in IPL 2024. Pandya brothers have already come face to face. But only one of the Curran brothers of England has entered the field. The interesting thing is that among the Karen brothers, the younger one is captaining his team, but the elder brother is also yearning for a place in his playing eleven.

This pair of brothers from England is Sam Curran and Tom Curran. Sam Curran is an important member of Punjab Kings. Punjab Kings included Sam Curran in their team in 2023 by bidding Rs 18.50 crore. This year, when team captain Shikhar Dhawan was injured, this responsibility was given to Sam Karen. Sam Curran also played this role well. He scored 207 runs in 12 matches and also took 14 wickets. However, this IPL season will not be good for Sam’s elder brother Tom Curran.

IPL Playoffs: 4 England players returned home, 4 more will return, know which IPL team will suffer the most loss

RCB bid Rs 1.50 crore for Tom
Sam’s elder brother Tom Curran is with Royal Challengers Bangalore in IPL 2024. RCB has spent Rs 1.50 crore to include Tom in their team. However, Tom Curran may be disappointed that he was not included even once in the playing eleven. RCB has played 13 matches in the tournament. Now he has only one match left in the league stage. Tom Curran may hardly get a chance in this do-or-die match and if RCB does not reach the playoffs, the English pacer will have to return to his country without playing.

Younger brother also played more matches for England
Talking about international cricket, Tom Curran has played 2 Tests, 28 ODIs and 30 T20 matches for England. Sam Karen has got more opportunities than his elder brother. Sam has played 24 Test, 32 ODI and 46 T20 matches for his country. Sam has also been included in the English team for the T20 World Cup to be held in June. Tom has not got a place in this team.

Karen brothers’ father has played World Cup
Sam Curran’s father Kevin Curran has also been an international cricketer. Kevin Ney played 11 ODI matches for Zimbabwe. He was a member of the Zimbabwe team in the World Cup 1983. When his cricketing career was not very successful, Kevin left Zimbabwe and settled in England. Sam Curran was born in England. After retirement, Kevin made coaching a career. He has coached teams like Namibia and Zimbabwe.
