It achieved 100.1 points for bowling impact, the third-highest score of any bowling performance in the tournament. Curran also made it a special T20 World Cup campaign by picking up a 5-wicket haul against Afghanistan during the Super 12 stage.
Curran sent back Mohammad Rizwan to break the partnership of Pakistan openers. He went on to dismiss Shan Masood and Mohammad Nawaz to finish with figures of 3/12. After being injured and missing England’s participation in the T20 World Cup in 2021, Curran’s comeback has been nothing short of amazing.
