Delhi Capitals were in fiery form at the IPL 2024 Auction on Tuesday, and surprised everyone with their purchase of Harry Brook. The Englishman was in poor form in his debut season with SRH in IPL 2023, and was released. DC purchased the batter for 4 crore.

Speaking to JioCinema, former England player Eoin Morgan said, “For me, he (Harry Brook) is more of a middle-order batter. Like AB de Villiers mentioned the fitness levels around Anrich Nortje might be dependent on the balance of their side, they have the likes of Lungi Ngidi who can come in as a replacement but that might depend on the pitch conditions as well. But I probably see Brook playing in the middle-order, I think Delhi won’t suit him as much as other places in India but 4 cr for a quality player like him is a bargain.”
