The England youngster shone in his second Test match in Rawalpindi, scoring 153 and 87 to secure a historic victory and set the tone for the rest of the series. In Jonny Bairstow’s absence, Brook performed well in the middle order and proved to be a perfect fit for the “Bazball” approach.

Brook became the eighth England batsman to score three consecutive away-match centuries. The right-handed batter made history by becoming the first English player to score 450 or more runs in a Test series in Pakistan. David Gower, who had previously set the record of 449 runs at 112.25 against Pakistan in 1984.
