Sam Curran says Kane Williamson wicket his favourite for England
England seamer Sam Curran states that the wicket of Kane Williamson daily two of their first Test is the most treasured global scalp to date.

REPORT | SCORECARD | HOW IT HAPPENED
Curran – who trapped Tom Latham lbw for eight – disclosed he was excited to atone with the ball and had been pinned leg before by Tim Southee for a golden duck in England’s 353 out.
Wondering if Williamson’s wicket was his best yet, the Surrey seamer said:”Since it’s so current, it probably is. I’m certain there are other minutes but off the top of my head [I can not think about any].”
“He’s a world-class participant so it’s wonderful to say that I’ve got him outside, but the primary thing is that we have got their best player out and today we enter the middle purchase.
“We’re pretty happy with how in which the day finished. Having a couple more rolls in the early hours, the wicket may begin being a bit irregular.
“Fingers crossed that’ll satisfy us and it gets worse as the game continues because, most likely, we’ll be bowling last.
“We clearly would like to be batting the moment we could and get a large, large lead. It’s likely to be a thrilling game.”
Curran confessed to being”a bit down” after his duck – that came England losing four wickets for 18 runs – but was then decided to contribute on a pitch maybe not appropriate for his style of bowling.
“There were a few players saying’let’s get up with this’ because I was down a bit but I believe that’s simply natural. I finished the day a great deal more happy than I had been at 12.30pm!” Additional the 21-year-old.
“I just need to contribute with bat and ball – I could not get any runs but I still really will finally contribute with a few wickets in the first innings.
“I’m a really competitive person so I like to get from the struggle even on a wicket which might not match me when I perform bowling that’s putting me under stress.
“If you are only going to sit back and allow them to do things against you personally, I believe I will not triumph.”
