Sam Curran made a unique record after being named in the English squad for the 5th Ashes Test at the Kia Oval. Sam and his brother Tom Curran became only the second brothers to play the Ashes for England. Before them, the Hollioake brothers (Ben Hollioake and Adam Hollioake) had the honor to play the most prestigious series for England.
Ben Hollioake and Adam Hollioake represented England in the final Ashes Test back in 1997. Ben Hollioake passed away in a tragic car accident in 2002. He was the youngest English cricketer to lose his precious life just at the age of 24.
