Harry Brook Named Northern Superchargers Captain

Harry Brook has been appointed as the captain of Northern Superchargers for this year’s men’s Hundred, marking his first leadership role since his tenure with England’s Under-19 team during the 2018 World Cup in New Zealand. The 25-year-old England batter takes over from Wayne Parnell, reflecting his rising status in English cricket and positioning him as a potential future white-ball captain for England.

Brook’s appointment comes under the direction of the Superchargers’ new head coach, Andrew Flintoff, who has recently served as an assistant with England’s white-ball team. Expressing his enthusiasm for the role, Brook said, “It’s an honour to captain Northern Superchargers, and I’m really excited for it. It’s always special to play at Headingley and to represent the area, and to do that as captain in the Hundred this year will be extra special.”

Brook has shown remarkable prowess on the field, notably with an unbeaten 102 off 42 balls in his last match for the Superchargers against Welsh Fire at Headingley. This performance not only cemented his reputation but also strengthened his case for inclusion in England’s 50-over World Cup squad.

The Northern Superchargers squad is bolstered by prominent players, including England Test captain Ben Stokes, West IndiesNicholas Pooran, and Brook’s fellow World Cup teammates Adil Rashid and Reece Topley. Recently, the team also signed former England opener Jason Roy, who replaces the suspended Brydon Carse. Brook expressed confidence in the team, stating, “I really like the look of the squad we’ve formed, and I think there’s a lot to be excited about. I can’t wait to work with Freddie and the rest of the group and hopefully it’ll be a year to remember.”

On the women’s side, Hollie Armitage will continue as captain, alongside head coach Dani Hazell, after their successful campaign last year, where they finished as runners-up to Southern Brave.

Harry Brook’s leadership marks a new chapter for the Northern Superchargers, with fans eagerly anticipating a memorable season under his captaincy.
