“Since he plays all three formats, the ECB thinks it is risky to permit him to play the SA20. We have received the communication from the ECB last night,” said Kasi Viswanathan (CEO of IPL franchise Chennai Super Kings).
The 23-year-old was bought for R 2.10 million by the Joburg Super Kings earlier this year. Talking more about the young batter, Brook was bought by IPL franchise SunRisers Hyderabad in the recent Auction in Kochi. The England batter was bought for INR 13.25 Crore.
