    England has become one of the major hubs of cricket. Earlier, the country was known for producing technically sound cricketers who would dominate red-ball cricket. There would be bowlers from England, who could swing the ball both ways and torment the opposition batters, especially in the UK and New Zealand.

    However, times have changed now. The English team is no longer famous for producing swinging fast bowlers, but instead, the team has focused more on developing hitters now. Be it Tests, ODIs or T20Is, the English side aims to attack all out with the willow and score quick runs for the team.

    This has resulted in the English players being in demand for the T20 leagues. Some of them play in the tournaments like CPL, BBL, T10 League, ILT20 and PSL first before breaking into the IPL. Here’s a list of two such English batters.

    1. England batter Tom Kohler-Cadmore made his IPL debut earlier tonight

    Tom Kohler-Cadmore made his IPL debut for the Rajasthan Royals earlier tonight against the Punjab Kings at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium. The right-handed wicketkeeper batter could not impress much on his IPL debut for the Royals as he scored just 19 runs at a strike rate of less than 100.

    Tom has a phenomenal record in the PSL. He has played 27 matches, scoring almost 600 runs, with his highest strike rate being 92. He hits a boundary every 5.4 balls in that league.

    2. Harry Brook

    Harry Brook has grabbed the headlines with his exploits in Test cricket over the last two years. Before that, PSL franchise Lahore Qalandars gave Brook a chance, and he made the most out of the opportunity, scoring 264 runs in eight innings at a strike rate of more than 170. He also smacked a century in 2022, and in 2023, he earned a mega deal from SRH in IPL.
