England all-rounder Tom Curran is winning hearts for his selfless gesture during an International League T20 match. Curran, while playing for the Desert Vipers in their match against Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, was spotted giving bowling lesions to a ball boy near the boundary ropes. While Curran did a great job for his team, scoring 16 runs off just 8 balls and conceding only 11 runs in his two overs, he did even better while fielding.
The Vipers’ player was seen teaching a little kid how to bowl a back-of-the-hand slower delivery while fielding near the boundary ropes. Curran was seen explaining every minute detail of the art which he can claim he knows very well. Meanwhile, the little kid was also seen asking questions and trying to gain as much knowledge as he can.
The video of the incident was shared on the tournament’s official Instagram page with the caption, “@tc59 is not just winning on the field ❤️ The future of cricket is in good hands as Curran passes on his skills to the next generation.”
With the video doing the rounds on the internet, it garnered quite a few reactions. New Zealand batter Colin Munro who also leads the Dester Vipers in ILT20 was flattered after seeing Curran’s gesture. “How good is this 🔥👏,” commented Munro on the post. Tom Moody also praised Curran as he wrote, “Class from TC”.
Coming to the match between Desert Vipers and Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, it was a thumping win for the Vipers. The Colin Munro-led team beat Sunil Narine's Knight Riders 111 runs to bring a third consecutive win. Alex Hales with his 59-ball 110 starred for the Vipers.
