KEIGHLEY-BORN Harry Brook has received his maiden Test call-up for England.

The Yorkshire middle-order batsman has been in sparkling form in the County Championship, and is Division One's top scorer, with a mammoth 758 runs from eight innings at an average of 151.60.

The 23-year-old made his T20 international debut against the West Indies in January of this year, following sparkling performances in the Vitality Blast and The Hundred in 2021.

But the former Burley-in-Wharfedale cricketer and Ilkley Grammar School pupil has not played for England in the longer format yet, but that will all change if he gets the nod for the first Test against New Zealand, which gets underway on June 2.

Brook is not the only Yorkshire player named in the squad for the first two Tests against the Black Caps.

Bradford's Jonny Bairstow has been selected in the 13-strong group, as has Joe Root, who has been replaced as Test captain by Durham all-rounder Ben Stokes.
