England allrounder Tom Curran is winning hearts for his heartwarming gesture during an International League T20 (ILT20) match. Curran, while playing for the Desert Vipers against Abu Dhabi Knight Riders, was spotted giving some bowling lessons to a ball boy near the boundary ropes. He also did a great job for his team, scoring 15 runs off just 8 balls and conceding only 11 runs in the two overs he bowled. And he was also sharp in the field.
Curran was seen teaching a little kid how to bowl a back-of-the-hand slower delivery while fielding near the boundary ropes. Curran was seen explaining every minute detail of the art that he knows all about. Meanwhile, the little kid was also seen asking questions and trying to gain as much knowledge as he can.

Ales Hales’s red-hot form continues in the shortest format
Talking about the match, the Knight Riders won the toss and opted to bat first. Opener Alex Hales continued his dream form and smashed a brilliant hundred. He took Knight Riders to the cleaners out there, smashing 110 off just 59. Three matches he’s played so far in this tournament and his scores are 83, 64, and 110.
Colin Munro also contributed very much to the scoreboard as he scored 56 runs off 41 balls. Sherfane Rutherford played a quickfire inning of 23 runs off just 7 deliveries and Vipers ended up scoring a huge total of 219 runs in 20 overs. Lahiru Kumara was the only bowler who didn’t concede too many runs, he also picked up two important wickets for the team.
In reply, the Knight Riders could never get going as they lost their first seven wickets on the score of just 54 runs. Sheldon Cottrell bowled an impressive spell to derail the batting side, he took 3 wickets while conceding only 14 runs in his 4 overs. There was no chance to bounce back after such a feeble start and although Andre Russell (57 off 29) entertained everyone with a few lusty blows but that was not just enough as the Vipers eventually won the match by a massive margin of 111 runs.
