England all-rounder Tom Curran will miss the 2022 IPL and the first two months of the county season with a low back stress fracture. Curran left the current 2021-2022 BBL with back pain after playing four games, and will undergo a period of rehabilitation over the next few months.
Tom Curran, the English all-rounder will miss the 15th edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) and the first two months of the county season after being diagnosed with lower back stress fracture. The 23-year-old had recently retired from the Big Bash League 2021-2022 due to back pain, and the English versatile will now undergo a period of rehabilitation for the next few months.
Surrey, the county club Curran plays for, issued a statement on Monday confirming the all-rounder injury.
“He will now undergo rehabilitation at the Kia Oval under the direction of the Surrey medical staff,” the club said.
Curran has been with the IPL since 2018 and has played for the Kolkata Knight Riders, Royals of Rajasthan and the capitals of Delhi. However, Curran’s injury will prevent him from participating in the next silver-rich league season. Curran was called up to cover his brother Sam Curran in England’s 2021 T20 World Cup squad, but the all-rounder was unable to play a game for his side at the flagship event.
In addition, Surrey has said he “will not return to cricket until the start of Vitality Blast”, delaying his return until May 2021.
Curran’s brother Sam Curran was sidelined after injuring himself while playing for Chennai Super Kings in the second stage of IPL 2021 in the United Arab Emirates.
