Promising England batsman Harry Brook, who is being labeled as the future of cricket, has scored another explosive ton to put his team in the driving seat on the first day of the second Test against New Zealand in Wellington on Friday.

Brook dominated the New Zealand bowlers completely by carting them all over the park with an unbeaten 184 runs from just 169 balls till rain stopped play. Brook hit 24 fours and five sixes during his explosive knock.

During his short career, Brook has already made a name for himself. He has so far scored four Test centuries and three fifties. Now, he has got the distinction of scoring the most Test runs after nine innings. He has 807 runs already at an average of 100.88. 

In the process, the bright youngster went past India’s Vinod Kambli, who had 798 runs from as many innings during the start of his career.

Moreover, Brook’s explosive ton against New Zealand has set internet on fire.

“Harry Brook’s incredible form continues as he brings up his fourth Test century,” tweeted ICC.

“One of the most sublime test match hundreds in recent memory. Filled with exquisite stroke after exquisite stroke...Harry Brook gets to 3 figures for the 4th time in Test Cricket. And though it's only his 6th Test, but you can already tell he's destined for greatness...” wrote a fan.
