Tom Curran | Somerset fans a “bunch of peasants” August 2018 Vitality T20 Blast

England bowler Tom Curran did not hold back in his criticism of Somerset’s fans following his Surrey side’s narrow defeat in their Vitality T20 Blast game at Taunton.

Curran called it the “worst crowd I’ve experienced” and “a bunch of peasants setting a terrible example”

Somerset won the game by 4 wickets. Surrey batting first scored 176/9 in their 20, which Somerset overhauled with five balls to spare thanks to half centuries from Peter Trego and Corey Anderson.
