YORKSHIRE CCC have tied down Harry Brook and Dom Leech to new deals with the club.

Brook is county cricket’s in-form batter, having scored a remarkable 926 runs from 11 Championship innings at an average of over 84.

The 23-year-old has also proved his talent in white-ball cricket, scoring 282 runs in the Vitality Blast at a 47 average.

His eye-catching form earned a call-up to the England Test squad for the ongoing three-match series against world number one side New Zealand, although he is yet to debut amid the strong performances of top-order players Ollie Pope, Joe Root and Jonny Bairstow.

Former England Under-19s captain Brook debuted for Yorkshire in 2016, aged just 17, and his renewed contract will keep him at Headingley until October 2027.

Seam bowler Leech made his Tykes bow in 2020 and has since played thrice in both first-class and T20 cricket, his stand-out performance being the match-best 3-13 he took in Saturday’s narrow six-wicket defeat Blast defeat at Derbyshire.

The 21-year-old, who has also previously represented England at U19 level, will remain at the White Rose until October 2024.

The news of Brook and Leech’s contract renewals comes shortly after high-profile Yorkshire stars David Willey and Tom Kohler-Cadmore each confirmed their exits within the space of a week, the pair heading for Northamptonshire and Somerset next season respectively.

On the retention news, Yorkshire’s interim managing director of cricket Darren Gough enthused: “We are absolutely delighted that they have both committed their futures to the club.

“Harry is an incredible talent and the performances he has put in so far this year have been nothing short of incredible, rightfully earning him an England call-up.

“It’s clear that he has a very bright future and it’s great for the club to be able to secure his services for a long period of time.

“Dom is a highly regarded seamer and we are really excited to see what he can achieve over the next few years.

“Like most young fast bowlers, he’s had to cope with a few injuries in the early-stage of his career but we are confident he has all of the attributes to be a brilliant cricketer for Yorkshire.”

Brook added: “I’m delighted to extend my contract with Yorkshire and hope I can contribute to a lot of wins in the coming years.

“Yorkshire is my home club and I’d love nothing more than to help bring some silverware to Headingley.”

Leech said: “I’m really pleased to have signed a contract extension with Yorkshire and committed my future to the club.

“I’ve had a great taste of first-team cricket over the last few years and want to push for a permanent spot in all squads.

“I’ve enjoyed working with our new coaching staff and look forward to continuing to develop my relationships with them.

“It’s great that the club have recognised my performances and rewarded me with this contract. Hopefully I can play my part in the side winning some trophies.”
