Gareth Batty, head coach of Surrey has given a statement in which he revealed that youngster Sam Curran is back to bowling recovery.

Curran bowled only 10 overs against Somerset on the 21st of April.

Since this match, Curran has mainly played as a batsman while bowling relatively little.

After this match, Curran has not bowled against Gloucestershire and Northamptonshire in the County Division matches.

Curran will not participate in the home series against New Zealand as he still has to finish his recovery programme.

Chris Woakes may also have to sit out the series due to injury after an arduous winter season for England.

Sam Curran’s recovery program is being monitored both by Surrey and England’s medical and fitness staff.

As Curran is a centrally-contracted player for England, his fitness is of the utmost importance for the national side.

If we talk about Curran’s batting performances, then he has batted quite brilliantly in his four innings in the County matches.

He has scores of 80 and 33 against Somerset, 64 against Gloucestershire and 73 against Northamptonshire.

Since his debut in the domestic sphere for England, Curran has not scored a ton. But Gareth Batty knows that milestone is not far away and Curran will achieve it in no time.
