Harry Brook “World Cup Omission” Statement
Young England cricket player Harry Brook, who has done well in different types of cricket matches, talked about not being chosen for the possible team in the ODI World Cup 2023 in India. People thought Brook would be chosen, but he wasn’t because Ben Stokes, who had said he was not playing ODIs anymore, was picked instead.
Harry Brook said he felt sad but kind of expected this to happen. He’s trying to get over it quickly. He also said he understands that he could have played better to make sure he had a definite spot in the team, especially in the limited-overs formats matches.
Harry Brook Statement
“Obviously it’s disappointing but I can’t do anything about it now,” Brook said after scoring 44 off 24 balls for Northern Superchargers in the Hundred on Friday night. “You’ve just got to move on. I’m trying not to think about it anymore.”
“I’ve not had many conversations with Matthew Mott or Jos Buttler. They said with Stokesy coming back I was probably going to miss out this time. He is one of the best players to ever play cricket, so I can’t complain, can I?”
“I’m just trying to enjoy my cricket at the minute,” he said. “I love playing for England and hopefully I’ll get another opportunity soon.”
“I feel like I’m playing well at the minute and feel I could potentially add value to the team. But there’s always something more you could do,” he said.
“I haven’t had much opportunity to play one-day cricket, whether that be for Yorkshire or England, and although I’ve played a lot of T20 cricket, I don’t know if I’ve done as well as I have in the past in the last six months, so that might have had an effect.”
Brook started playing for the international team in late 2022. Since then, he has been in 12 Test matches, 3 One Day Internationals (ODIs), and 20 T20 Internationals (T20Is) for England Cricket. In the Test matches, he has made 1181 runs and usually scores around 62.1 runs in each game. For ODIs, he has scored 86 runs, with an average of 28.7 runs per match. In T20Is, he has scored 372 runs, with an average of 26.6 runs. He is also a steady player in local cricket, with an average of over 50 in both first-class and List-A matches.
Cricket Experts Said
Surprising news! Brook wasn’t included, which amazed cricket experts and fans. They love his skills. Jofra Archer now with the BBC, said that he was “stunned” by the news, while Kevin Pietersen said that he would have picked Brook ahead of Dawid Malan, who he felt was not suited to playing on the subcontinent.
“I’m flabbergasted that he cannot make England’s World Cup 2023 squad,” Kevin Pietersen said on Sky Sports. “Flabbergasted. Because he is pure quality. I just cannot believe it.
