Chennai Super Kings (CSK) locked horns against the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) on Sunday in the first game of the day. It has been a tough season for the Men in Yellow and have been ruled out of the race for the playoffs. They are languishing at the bottom of the points table. The only shining light in the dark tunnel for them has been the England all-rounder Sam Curran.
The pocket-sized dynamo has done everything his skipper MS Dhoni has asked him. He has opened the batting, batted at the middle-order, played the role of a finisher and then has struck with the ball as well picking a lot of wickets for his team. It was Curran who saved the day for CSK after they were left reeling at 30/6 against Mumbai Indians (MI) on Friday.
Sam Curran was once again trending during the game against RCB but interestingly, it wasn’t for his performance. When the game began, the left-hander took the new ball and after delivering a couple of overs, his look on the field went viral. He was wearing sunglasses with an unusual green-coloured border while fielding. Curran had his hands on hips as well and the same picture left the Twitterati in splits.
The social media gimmicks were at work straightaway as they came up with hilarious memes to make the all-rounder’s look trending.
Sam Curran shines with the ball too
Meanwhile, in the game against RCB, Sam Curran was the talking point for his exceptional bowling as well. He picked crucial wickets of Aaron Finch, Virat Kohli and Moeen Ali during his three-over spell and conceded only 19 runs. CSK made good use of the slow pitch in Dubai and made sure that RCB didn’t get away at any stage in the innings.
Mitchell Santner, playing his first match, also went for only 23 runs in his four overs and picked a wicket of Devdutt Padikkal. Deepak Chahar dished out some decent variations to end up picking a couple of wickets too as CSK restricted RCB to just 145 runs for the loss of six wickets in their 20 overs. Meanwhile, Sam Curran was the talk of the town for his hilarious pose.
Here are some of the memes:
