Why Harry Brook Returned To England Leaving The Five-match Test Series Against India?

There is bad news coming up for the England cricket team as the England Cricket Board (ECB) confirmed on Sunday that middle-order batsman Harry Brook will be returning to the UK and will miss the India Test tour due to personal reasons.

The 24-year-old cricketer has participated in 12 Tests and scored a total of 1181 runs at an impressive average of 62.15, featuring four centuries and seven half-centuries.

Harry Brook has achieved a remarkable feat by surpassing a 125-year-old record held by KS Ranjitsinhji. He now holds the record for the most runs in a batter’s first six men’s Test innings for England.

“Harry Brook is set to return home with immediate effect for personal reasons from the England Men’s Test tour of India. He will not be returning to India,” ECB said in a statement.

“The Brook family respectfully requests privacy during this time. In light of this, the ECB and the family kindly request the media and the public to respect their wish for privacy and refrain from intruding on their private space. The England selectors will confirm a replacement player for the tour in due course.”

The first test of the five-match Test series is scheduled to commence on January 25 in Hyderabad. The second Test will happen in Vizag, which is set to start on February 2.
