England all-rounder Sam Curran was in Stamford Bridge for the Chelsea vs Bournemouth Premier League match.

Having recently become the most expensive player in IPL history, England all-rounder Sam Curran took some time away from cricket and decided to watch a Premier League match with his brothers Tom and Ben. Sam broke Chris Morris' record in the IPL 2023 Auction, when Punjab Kings (PBKS) purchased him for 18.5 crore and became the most expensive player in IPL history. In 2020, Morris was bought by Rajasthan Royals (RR) for 16.25 crore.

The 24-year-old was involved in a mega-bidding war, with his base price at 2 crore. As the bids went past 5 crore, Mumbai Indians (MI) and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) began to battle hard and then it was only MI and RR left in the competition, crossing 10 crore. Then Chennai Super Kings (CSK) and PBKS entered the race and took it to 15.50 crore, and then suddenly Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) jumped in with a bid of 15.75 crore. PBKS then pushed for 16.50 crore, with MI taking it to 16.75 crore. Finally, PBKS reigned supreme with a bid of 18.50 crore.

The IPL 2023 Auction also saw MI purchase Cameron Green for 17.5 crore, and Ben Stokes moving to CSK for 16.25 crore, breaking Morris' record within 15 minutes of Set 2.

Sharing the photos of the Curran brothers in social media, Chelsea captioned it as, "The Curran brothers in for the show!"
