England have been fortunate to have multiple all-rounders in contention for a spot in the playing XI over the years. Sam Curran, who made his debut for the Three Lions in 2018, has established himself as a crucial member of the T20I squad.

After missing the ICC T20 World Cup 2021 due to a lower-back injury, Curran is back in line to feature in the XI for the upcoming 20-overs global event in October. 

The 24-year-old will test his traits in the seven-match T20I series against Pakistan starting September 20, opened about his all-format ambitions for England looking ahead. 

The left-hander spoke in length about only focusing on the T20 WC in Australia, during his time away from the team. 

"You've seen guys who are choosing to rest in certain periods because there is quite a lot of cricket. For me right now, coming off a six-month lay-off with injury, I want to play all formats if I can.

I'm trying to be as adaptable as possible. I'm sure there's going to be a lot of rotation: guys coming back from injury, newer guys coming in. My role might vary as guys come back or guys come in. The role I'm given is just to contribute with the ball when I bowl and when I'm batting.” - Curran was quoted by Cricket.com
