Harry Brook heads to Hobart for Big Bash League

Harry Brook heads to Hobart: Hurricanes sign England after an amazing season for Yorkshire and Northern Superchargers.

Hobart Hurricanes has signed one of the hottest young estates in English cricket with Harry Brook for his first BBL appearance next season.

The 22-year-old had a stellar season for Yorkshire in Vitality Blast. He was the fourth-highest run-scorer with 486 runs at a hit rate of 149.07 strokes in the middle order.

In both Blast and hundred, he simply failed to reach 20 in three of his 18 innings, which reached 150.33 in the English summer.

And was duly rewarded with the Professional Cricketers Association nomination for Young Player of the Year. . The three previous winners have been Zak Crawley, Tom Banton, and Ollie Pope.

Given that Dawid Malan will not be available to the Hurricanes due to his likely involvement with the Ashes, Brook will fit perfectly into their middle order.

“Over the years I’ve really enjoyed watching English cricketers like myself come out to Australia, and it seems that not only have they really enjoyed their time playing in the BBL, but a lot of them have also taken their game to the next level.

“I can’t wait to come out to Australia and play in the Big Bash for the first time,” Brook said.

“I’m really hoping that I can do the same, so I just can’t wait to get there, get stuck in and learn as much as I can.”

The Hurricanes targeted a hard-hitting middle-sized foreign player to round out their impressive top 6. They will likely have Matthew Wade, D’Arcy Short.

And Ben McDermott in the top three for most of the season, with Peter Handscomb, Tim David, and Brook completing an excellent middle class.

They have arrested Sandeep Lamichhane as their overseas leg clamp and have a group of quick players to choose from when looking for an elusive BBL title.
