Former England captain Michael Vaughan showered praises on rising star Harry Brook following his mammoth innings against New Zealand in the second Test. The 24-year-old has hit an unbeaten 184 as England seizes control in Wellington. Brook has been in the limelight as the youngster has shown some enormous potential in his brief career so far.
Vaughan took to the microblogging site Twitter to shower praises on the youngster as he feels Joe Root could pass the mantle to Harry Brook in the coming years. He tweeted, "For the last 10 yrs all kids have wanted to Bat and be like Joe Root .. For the next 10 yrs they will all want to Bat like Harry Brook .. #NZvENG."

Waiting for Harry brook to play Ashwin & Jadeja on Indian pitches !!— brutal_pk (@KanjaniPradeep1) February 24, 2023
Vinod Kambli started this well and we all saw where that went. Let’s not put too much pressure on him. The future of the big teams is Green, Gill, Brook etc— Kam 🏎 (@KP07_) February 24, 2023

Harry should still prove on Indian pitches,if he can play spin better or noton other hand Root is proven batter and plays well on spin pitches
wow, few games and Brook is above Root.... another couple of games, above Bradman then 😅— Narayanan (@Narayan22538287) February 24, 2023
Its a long way to go to compare fab 4 with anyone else....
Exciting talent for sure but should we just jump the gun yet. Let him go around the world for a couple of years & then take a call 🙂 Root has proved himself all around, hope this lad lives up to it & forms his own legacy. The world has taken note for now— 🅰️💲♓🍭 (@ashwin_subha) February 24, 2023
