5 Players Like Harry Brook Who Will Dominate Test Cricket In The Next Decade

Harry Brook is the next big thing in England cricket, or at least his stats in Test cricket says so. He has played just six Test matches having made his debut in September 2022 and has already scored four centuries and three fifties in just nine innings.

England posted 315/3 in 65 overs on the opening day of the second Test against New Zealand and Brook has scored more than half those runs for his team. He was unbeaten on 184 with 24 fours and five sixes. Former England skipper Joe Root was unbeaten on 103 as the pair added an unbeaten 294-run stand together.

The Kiwi bowlers took three early wickets and had England tottering at 21/3 in the seventh over of the England innings. It was then that Root and Brook joined hands and peppered the New Zealand bowlers.

Kiwi pacer Neil Wagner went on to concede more than 100 runs on the very first day of the Test match. Tim Southee picked one wicket and Matt Henry picked two. Both teams are out of contention from reaching the WTC final but nonetheless, this is an important series.

The first name that comes to mind is Shubman Gill from India. Gill made his Test debut against Australia in the Border-Gavaskar series 2020-21 and since then, has come a long way for India. He is one of the few Indian batters to have centuries in all three for his country.

Gill has scored over 600 runs in ODIs this year and over 200 runs in T20Is. Gill was not included in the playing XI in the first two Test against India but is likely to play in the last two Tests in place of KL Rahul. In 2022, he flourished as a test cricketer having scored nearly 500 runs in nine Tests.
