The series of tests recently concluded between India and England will be remembered for several reasons. From the first century of Virat Kohli on English soil until James Anderson broke Glenn McGrath's record, the five-game series has been nothing short of action-packed performances and high octane drama. Although the series, which the hosts won by 4-1, will be largely remembered as the opener series of opener Alastair Cook, the legendary Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar believes that the "intelligent thinker" Sam Curran has been the winner of the tournament for England. "Congratulations, @englandcricket for winning the #AlastairCook test series, wishing you an even better chance after retirement. #SamCurran has been the standout player in this series, Smart Thinker #ENVENIDO," tweeted Tendulkar.

Curran, 20, entered the series against India with only one Test to his credit, the second against Pakistan earlier this year.
In the first game at Edgbaston, the Surrey SUV produced a vital hit in the second inning of 63 and took five wickets to help England win by 31 runs.
He scored 40 runs and took a postulate in the Lord & # 39; s Test, as England won by one chance and 159 races. However, Curran was ruled out for the third test on the Trent Bridge, which the hosts lost by 203 runs.
As expected, Curran returned to play the game at the Rose Bowl, hitting 78 game saviors. He added 46 in the second inning, along with two wickets, while England sealed the series with a 60-race victory.
The two Curran fields on the last day of the Oval Test helped the hosts to win an incredible victory of 118 races, claiming the series 4-1.
His efforts during the five Tests saw Curran taking home the Player of the Series award.
