Harry Brook, after his controversial comment during IPL 2023 and subsequent century, admitted regret for his past statement against Indian fans.
Harry Brook, part of England’s middle-order, expressed regret for his comments directed towards Indian fans during IPL 2023. Acknowledging his prior extensive social media involvement, Brook admitted stepping back to focus on his cricket.
Despite being a high-profile purchase for SRH in IPL 2023 at 13.25 crores, the 24-year-old faced performance pressure and online criticism. However, he responded emphatically, slamming a swift 55-ball century against KKR, expressing satisfaction in silencing some Indian fans.
In recent developments, Brook openly admitted remorse for his remarks, labeling himself “an idiot” for his past behavior.
“I was an idiot and I said that stupid thing in an interview which I regret a little bit. In India, you end up sitting in your hotel room, not much to do so I find myself just scrolling Instagram or Twitter or whatever and come across stuff you just don’t want to see. I thought it was the right idea to get off it,” Brook was quoted as saying by BBC.
“I’ve been off social media for a while now, anything I stumble across, I delete it from the phone. I haven’t really seen any negativity, I think that’s helped my game, helped my mental health and everything to be off social media and seeing all the negativity that brings,” he added.
Following the World Cup, Harry Brook expressed the need for a brief respite, feeling worn out after the tournament, especially due to England’s disappointing performance. He found a two-week break at home refreshing and now, while in the West Indies, aims to focus on refining his skills, particularly in one-day cricket.
