HARRY Brook has been added to the England Men’s IT20 squad for the five-match series against West Indies in Barbados.

The Yorkshire right-hander has been called up to the main international side for the first time as batting cover for Sam Billings, after he was included in the squad for the fifth Ashes Test in Hobart.

Billings remains a part of the 17-player squad for the West Indies IT20s.

Brook has spent the winter in Australia with the England Lions and the Hobart Hurricanes in the Big Bash League. He is set to return to UK before flying to Barbados.

The series against the West Indies gets underway on January 22.

Brook made a name for himself in the 2021 English summer, scoring 486 runs and averaging an astonishing 69.43 for Yorkshire in the Vitality Blast, while hitting 189 runs at 47.25 in the inaugural Hundred for Northern Superchargers.
