Henry's Bio

A tall aggressive pacer, Henry James Hamilton Brookes is a professional English cricketer who made his debut in competitive cricket at the age of 17. Solihull-born, and a product of the Edgbaston system, Henry had already impressed for England U-19s when he was given his championship bow in 2017.

Twenty-year-old Henry made a massive impression when given his first run in the first-teams in 2018 and followed that up with a very impressive season last year. Shortly after his County Championship debut as an 18-year-old, Ashley Giles labelled him a “potential superstar”. For good measure, he holds a Hundred deal with Birmingham Phoenix and was part of the England Lions’ unbeaten trip to Australia during the winter before the world ground to a halt.

Henry made an instant impact on his Royal London Cup debut in May 2018 and nearly carried Warwickshire into the semis with a bustling spell of 3/57 against Worcestershire. With the seam department ravaged by injuries, Henry stood tall, delivering nearly 400 overs in all cricket, a display of sustained strength and excellence which earned a Lions call-up in the winter of 2019.

Henry was one of the first cricketers in the country to return to training after last spring’s national lockdown. Selected by England initially as part of their 55-man summer pool and then included in a smaller 24-man group ahead of the ODI series against Ireland, his stock continues to rise. He took three wickets in a 50-over warmup game against the Irish tourists, impressing under the captaincy of Eoin Morgan.
