The 23-year-old made 69 of 38 goals as well Surrey scored 228-4 – their second highest in T20 history – before getting the best of their 5-30 careers, including three wickets in more than Hampshire were fired at 156.
The Kia Oval crowd of 15,000 people was treated to spectacular strikes, first by Carran and Will Jacks, who scored 131 of 73 goals for the second goal, and then by Sunil Narine, who added 52 of 23 deliveries.
It was the highest result for Surrey at the Aval in seven years and too much for the Hampshire team, which was hampered by the lack of a better batsman James Vince through illness. James Fuller scored the best score of 43 in their response, but they remain unbeaten after four games.
Surrey’s overall result was the highest that Hampshire has ever conceded to T20 cricket, beating Somerset 220-4, made in Tonton 12 years ago. And their loss in 72 races was the fifth largest in the format.
However, it started well for them. After they picked the first shot, they made a breakthrough in the first finish when reserve captain Liam Dawson punched one through Jason Roy’s defense.
But Jacks and Curran soon withdrew their attack on all parts. Between them, they got ten sixes and nine fours in a partnership that was third in Surrey in the T20 and overshadowed their previous best result against Hampshire when Jack and Lori Evans scored 118 at The Ageas Bowl two years ago.
Jack has scored 64 of 36 goals with five sixes – his second fifty in the competition this season – and Curran has also cleared the rope five times, including consecutive blows by Mason Crane to bring him to fifty. Three repetitions of Crane’s leg rotation disappeared in 58 runs.
Dawson briefly delayed the case, dismissing both battered in the 13th of. Jakes was brilliantly caught by a diving crane in the wide middle before Crane was much easier hooked on the cover to fire Carran for 69 of 38 deliveries.
But Hampshire’s suffering was far from over. Narine showed an exciting time and strength to score 52 of just 23 goals with five fours and four sixes, and their response began badly with Nick Gabbins, who played his first T20 of the season, acrobatically hitting the cover by Kieran Pollard from Rice Topli’s second goal.
Ben McDermott and Tom Finger briefly increased hopes of Hampshire by adding 54 of 23 goals, and McDermott sent a supply from Topley to Harliford Road before the Koran made its decisive explosion, throwing Finger into the bowling alley as he crossed the line, cheating more a slow ball that the Australian jumped to the middle, and Aneurin Donald took in the middle from the top edge.
Curran then returned to Nathan Ellis ’bowl and Fuller’s pins lbw to complete the impressive night’s work.
