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