9. Tom Curran sees the positive side of his injury; thanked everyone for the love and support
Obviously very disappointing to be missing the rest of the season with an injury I picked up during our game a few days ago. With the amount of cricket I’ve played in the last few years I haven’t really had an off season, so looking at the positives I’m excited to make the most of this opportunity and get a seriously good 6 weeks training in. I feel like my body needs it and its going to stand me in good stead moving forward and make sure I’m back at my best soon, ahead of a big winter. Thanks for the love everyone 🙏🏼
