Harry Brook added to England’s T20I squad for West Indies tour

The 22-year-old has been called-up to the squad as a cover for Sam Billings

England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) have confirmed that Harry Brook, deemed one of the best young batters in the country, has been added to the senior squad for the five-match T20I series against West Indies that will commence on January 22nd. Brook, who is currently in Australia representing Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League, will join the squad as cover for Sam Billings, who earlier this week received an unexpected call-up to the Test squad following an injury to incumbent wicket-keeper Jos Buttler.

The ECB, however, have confirmed that Billings will remain a part of the 17-player squad for the West Indies T20Is.

Brook, 22, had a stunning Vitality Blast season last year, scoring 486 runs for Yorkshire at an average of 69.42 and strike rate of 149.07, and he backed that showing up with a stellar performance in the inaugural edition of The Hundred. Representing Northern Superchargers, the right-hander amassed 189 runs at a healthy average of 47.25 and a strike rate of 153.65. 

The youngster, however, has had a rough BBL 2021 season so far, averaging a mere 6.28 across 7 innings.
