Harry Brook Withdrawl IPL 2024

Harry Brook Withdraws from IPL 2024 After Grandmother’s Passing

5/5 - (1 vote)

England batter Harry Brook has made the difficult decision to withdraw from the upcoming IPL 2024 season to support his grieving family following the passing of his grandmother in February. Brook, who was set to join Delhi Capitals, expressed his sadness and gratitude in a statement, highlighting the profound impact his grandmother had on his life and cricketing career.

Brook’s absence from both the IPL and England’s recent Test series in India underscores the importance of family and mental wellbeing. While Capitals are yet to announce a replacement for Brook, his departure leaves a void in their batting lineup. Despite Brook’s withdrawal, the team is gearing up under the leadership of Rishabh Pant, who has been cleared to play after recovering from injuries sustained in a car accident.

The 25-year-old made his IPL debut in the 2023 season with Sunrisers Hyderabad but struggled to replicate his T20 form. Capitals had high hopes for Brook, slotting him at No.6 to bolster their batting alongside stars like David Warner and Prithvi Shaw. With Brook’s departure, Capitals will rely on their remaining overseas players to step up and improve on their performance from the previous season.
