BBL 11 squads: Full player lists

Hobart Hurricanes have signed Harry Brook ahead of the 2021 Big Bash.

The 22-year-old, who was recently named the PCA young player of the year, enjoyed a prolific white-ball season for both Yorkshire and Northern Superchargers.

In the T20 Blast, he scored a team-leading 486 runs, including two half-centuries, at a strike rate of 149.07 to finish fourth in the overall run standings. In The Hundred, he scored a further 189 runs at a strike rate of 153.65 in five appearances.

His performances for Northern Superchargers led captain Ben Stokes to comment: "He's not scared of any situation; he's not frightened of any bowler and he just sticks to what works for him. I don't think it will be too long before we see him wearing the Three Lions [of England]."


Fellow big-hitters Matthew Wade and Tim David will be among his teammates in Hobart

Speaking to The Cricketer earlier in the season, Brook discussed his T20 form: "I feel like I know my game better and I know where my scoring options are in T20 cricket. I know where I want to hit my boundaries. I take my time, look at the field and have my different options for what I think the bowler is going to bowl. I've executed it well this year."

Brook joins a Hobart side already brimming with big-hitting talent, with Matthew Wade, D’Arcy Short, Ben McDermott, Tim David and Peter Handscomb among his new teammates.

The 2021 Big Bash is scheduled to get underway on December 5. Hobart Hurricanes’ first match is against Sydney Sixers on December 8.
