This Sam Curran kid really has something about him. Does not look old enough to shave, but he has a sort of positive attitude about him.

What a family, too, he has two brothers who are also pretty handy, one already played for England maybe?

Dad must be well proud.

His father passed away from a heart attack aged 50 when out running, about 10 years ago

at that point, the three brothers having been recommended to Surrey by former captain Ian Greig, were brought across to England, installed in the academy programme and benefactors, Piers Morgan included, paid for their tuition at Wellington College

two have played for England. Tom took 5-28 on his return from injury to beat Notts this week in the CC, and Ben made his debut for Northants in the same week

the three still live with their Mum in Virginia Water

Ugh, put my foot in it again.

Real shame, he would have been so proud. Think the Dad was a decent cricketer, too?

That's a great story.

What a life lies ahead for all three of them.

What chance sell three playing for England? Think they are actual South African, or somewhere down that way, Rhodesia or whatever?

Yes, Northants, Gloucs and Zimbabwe. A real competitior hard as nails which his boys have inherited

On retirement went back to Zim (the boys were born over here) and took over the family farm and was grappling with Mugabe regime stipulations at the time of his premature death

Just remembered they did away with Rhodesia recently. It's Zimbabwe now apparently.

Despite which he was dropped from the team midway through producing those excellent numbers.

Alistair Cook retiring from internationals.....

Probably a good decision, maybe just a series too late, but he owes England nothing & has had a great career.

How long before Broad & Anderson start to contemplate retirement from the Test arena? (Broad first, presumably?).

He's not retired has he, he's been dropped and they are giving him the opportunity to "retire", in much the same way as politicians are asked to resign.

I'm sure he'll unretire if he's still playing and the need arises.

No, Broad first for me, Jimmy is wearing better imo.
