International cricket

Curran was selected for the England Performance Programme squad in September 2015; he completed his residential qualification for England in October 2015. Curran received his first call-up to a full England squad in February 2017 for the One Day International (ODI) tour of the West Indies, as cover for Jake Ball.

In June 2017, he was named in England's Twenty20 International (T20I) squad for the series against South Africa. He made his T20I debut for England against South Africa on 23 June 2017 at Taunton, taking 3 wickets for 33 runs, including a wicket in his first over.

In September 2017, he was named in England's One Day International (ODI) squad for their series against the West Indies. He made his ODI debut for England against the West Indies on 29 September 2017.

In November 2017, he was added to England's Test squad as a replacement for Steven Finn for the Ashes series in Australia. Prior to the fourth Test starting at the MCG on Boxing Day, Curran was named as a replacement for the injured Craig Overton, giving him his Test debut.

On Test debut, he celebrated when he thought he had dismissed David Warner caught at mid-on for 99. However, TV replays showed that Curran had over-stepped and a no-ball was called. Warner returned to complete his century and Curran finished the day wicketless. He became the third England bowler after Ben Stokes and Mark Wood to miss out on a maiden Test wicket because of a no-ball. His first wicket in Tests was Steve Smith.
