Internet Desk: Two times IPL champions Kolkata Knight Riders has named Tom Curran as the replacement for Mitchell Starc for the forthcoming season of Indian Premier League. 23 year old Curran plays for English County side Surrey. The all rounder will join the Knight Riders ahead of their first match against Royal Challengers Bangalore on April 08.

A veteran of 51 T20 matches, Curran has taken 53 wickets at an average of 27.16 and an economy of 8.25. He made his Test debut during the Ashes last December, and has also played eight One-Day Internationals and six Twenty20 Internationals for England.

In a statement on the county’s website, Curran said, “I’m thrilled and excited to be joining Kolkata Knight Riders for the IPL.”

He also added, “I know from chatting to other players I can learn a lot from being in that environment, skills that I hope will benefit Surrey and my chances of representing England again this year and if selected, for next year’s World Cup.”

“I want to thank Alec Stewart and everyone at Surrey County Cricket Club for supporting my ambitions and allowing me this great opportunity. I can’t wait to represent Surrey again when I return, hopefully with a few more tricks up my sleeve.”
