For me @KP24 is Englands most destructive/flamboyant player of all time … I think Harry B is going to give him a good nudge though … #NZvENG

By surpassing Sir Donald Bradman’s record of four Test hundreds in as few as six matches, Harry Brook cemented his status as one of the game’s most promising young players. Brook has seen an extraordinary ascent in the game of cricket that can only be described as meteoric, and his efforts in the most recent Test series against New Zealand have only served to boost his reputation.
Given that Pietersen is regarded as one of England’s all-time best batsman, Vaughan’s comparison of Brook to him is a very high compliment. Pietersen was well-known for his flashy and violent playing style, which won him both admirers and detractors. Brook will undoubtedly be remembered as one of England’s most entertaining players if he can replicate even a small portion of Pietersen’s achievement.
Harry Brook has surpassed Vinod Kambli of India as the player with the highest runs in Test cricket after nine innings. Following the conclusion of the day’s play in ongoing England vs. New Zealand Test, Harry Brook now has 807 runs in his first nine Test innings compared to Vinod Kambli’s 798 at the start of the match.
On the list of most runs scored after nine innings, Harry Brook also surpassed legends like Herbert Sutcliffe, Sunil Gavaskar, and Everton Weeks. Only behind Sunil Gavaskar, who had an average of 129.66 in his first nine Test innings, Brook is now averaging 100.88.
