WATCH: Harry Brook scores first century of IPL 2023 during KKR vs SRH clash

Harry Brook smashed the first century of the 2023 Indian Premier League on Friday night.

On Friday night, Harry Brook, the accomplished batsman of Sunrisers Hyderabad, delivered an outstanding performance by scoring the first century of the 2023 Indian Premier League (IPL) during the match against Kolkata Knight Riders. Brook’s batting pace slowed down when KKR’s spinners entered the game, but he quickly regained momentum after being dropped by Suyash Sharma in the 14th over of the innings.

Harry Brook achieved his century in just 55 balls, displaying his remarkable talent by hitting 12 fours and three sixes throughout his knock. Brook had faced considerable criticism after a lackluster start to the IPL 2023 season, having scored only 13 runs off 21 deliveries in his first match against Rajasthan Royals and being dismissed for a mere 3 runs in the second game in Lucknow.

With another failure, there were doubts about his place in the XI. However, the SRH team management made a brilliant decision by promoting him to open the innings, which proved to be a game-changer for Brook’s performance.

Brook’s remarkable century places him at the top of the IPL 2023 centuries list, with hopes of more to come from the talented batsman. His impressive knock was filled with brilliant strokes and strategic shot selections that left the opposition team clueless.

Harry Brook has now become the fifth English batsman to score a century in the IPL, joining the esteemed company of Kevin Pietersen, Ben Stokes, Jos Buttler, and Jonny Bairstow. Furthermore, Brook is the joint-third fastest batsman to reach a century in the IPL, having achieved this feat in just four innings.
