Srinagar: In a major jolt for Delhi Capitals, ahead of IPL 2024, Star England batter Harry Brook has pulled out of the tournament.

Brook was purchased for INR 4 crore by Delhi Capitals.

Originally slated to participate in the Test series in India, Brook withdrew from the Test squad at the last minute, with the England team management and the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) seeking privacy for the player and his family.

“The Brook family respectfully requests privacy during this time. In light of this, the ECB and the family kindly request the media and the public to respect their wish for privacy and refrain from intruding on their private space,” stated the ECB in a January release.

Earlier Jason Roy and Alex Hales had also pulled out of the league. IPL franchises are considering addressing this issue with the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI).

“Once players register for the auction, they should honour their commitment. Reneging on it is unprofessional, and the BCCI should address this,” voiced a franchise official.
