Star England batter Harry Brook has amazed everyone with his sensational batting in the ongoing second of the two-match Test series against New Zealand. Notably, England and New Zealand are locking horns in the second Test of the series at the Basin Reserve in Wellington. The hosts’ skipper Tim Southee won the flip of the coin and asked the three lions to bat first.

Batting first the English team was in serious trouble after losing their top three early on the score of only 21 runs in 6.4 overs. But it was the time when former skipper Joe Root and young batting sensation Harry Brook took the charge to rescue England.

Speaking of Harry Brook, the 24-year-old stunned everyone with his amazing and swashbuckling knock of 184 runs off just 169 balls with 24 boundaries and five sixes to his name.

The cricket fans were also awestruck with the batting excellence of Harry Brook at the highest level of the game. They took to Twitter to shower praises on the young Yorkshire batting prodigy. Fans also reckoned that Brook is exactly the guy who can perfectly execute the BazBall theory of coach Brendon McCullum and Test skipper Ben Stokes.

Here’s how fans reacted:

Speaking of the match at the moment, the game of day 1 in wellington has ended having England at 315 for the loss of three wickets. Harry Brook and Joe Root went unbeaten at the time of stumps with an unbeaten partnership of 194 runs for the fourth wicket. Other than Brook, former skipper, and England batting superstar Joe Root was also unbeaten on the individual score of 101 runs with seven boundaries on his credit.

Matt Henry scalped two wickets by conceding 64 runs in 15 overs alongside skipper Tim Southee who picked one wicket.
