The young batter Harry Brook made his debut for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH) in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Sunday, April 2. Harry Brook received his maiden cap along with Adil Rashid and Mayank Agarwal during the match between the Sunrisers Hyderabad and Rajasthan Royals at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad.
The swashbuckling batter has been sensational in international cricket over the past few months. The right-handed batter played a crucial role in England’s victories in Pakistan and New Zealand. He was part of the England T20 World Cup-winning squad in 2022. The Hyderabad-based franchise bought him for a whopping Rs 13.25 crore at the IPL 2023 mini-auction.

Harry Brook expressed his excitement about making his IPL debut in front of a huge crowd. Brook is hopeful that he can contribute to the team by scoring big, having not played much T20 cricket after the World Cup.
“I am looking forward to the IPL, hopefully, we are going to have a packed crowd here. The stadium looks awesome, they were painting it the other day, all orange so it’s good to be out here. Haven’t played much T20 cricket since the World Cup so hopefully I can go out there and hit a few off the middle, get to a decent score and contribute to the team,” Harry Brook said.

Adil Rashid Is One Of The Best Bowlers In The World – Harry Brook
Harry Brook hailed Adil Rashid as one of the best bowlers in the world, stating that he has the ability to trouble quality batters. The young batter said that the team is missing some key players at the start, but they will be back in the lineup in the next two games.
“(On Adil Rashid) He is world-class and he is one of the best bowlers in the world for a reason. He is a wicket-taker, just like most leg spinners but he is a very clever bowler and watches the batters hard and tries to adapt to what the batters are doing. So, he is going to be an extremely good addition to the team,” he added.
“(On missing a few key players initially) We are missing the captain so it is a big miss, but they have got other commitments. I am sure they will slide in perfectly into the side in a couple of games. We have to focus on this game for now and we are looking forward to it,” concluded.
