“Brook is now one of the best players in the world at the moment” - Rashid Latif on Harry Brook     

While speaking on his YouTube channel 'Caught Behind', Rashid Latif said: “If you look at Brook's performance then in the last couple of innings he was just outstanding. He just doesn't stop. He also became one of the most expensive overseas players in the Indian T20 League auction. Brook is now one of the best players in the world at the moment, among the current crop of players. He could be the next Babar Azam or Virat Kohli.”

Even, England's skipper, Ben Stokes came up with huge praise for Brook when he hit three centuries during the Pakistan series. Stokes said: “He's one of those rare players that you look across all formats and you can just see him being successful everywhere. It's a massive shout, but Virat Kohli is one of those guys where his technique is just so simple and works everywhere. The pressure that he puts back onto opposition is exactly what we're about."
