Ben Curran, the brother of England cricketers Sam and Tom, signed with Northamptonshire, the club of their late father, Kevin, for the latter part of 2018. He made his Northamptonshire debut in the T20 Blast against Derbyshire after a successful period in the 2nd XI where he scored 490 runs in six matches, having caught the club's eye while playing against them for MCC Young Cricketers. By the season's end he had amassed 251 runs at 31.38, headed by 83 in the final match of the season against Sussex.
Ben Curran is back at the County Ground and raring to go for a positive 2019 season with Northamptonshire.
