Brook, who was bought by SRH for INR 13.25 crore, did not have the greatest start to the 2023 tournament, making 13, 3 and 13 before smashing a stunning unbeaten 100 from 55 deliveries against Kolkata Knight Riders. However, he has not been able to fire since then, with knocks of nine and 18 in his next two games before the clash on Monday.

The England player, who came out to open the innings against DC, with the team needing 145 runs made two runs from his first six balls. He struggled with his footwork against Ishant Sharma and wasn’t as confident against the quicks as he was on his brutal century against KKR.

He survived a DRS review after Anrich Nortje but was out soon after in the sixth over trying to scoop a length ball from Nortje, only to see his middle stump clattered into.

Brook was criticised by Pietersen – who Brook is often compared to – for his mode of dismissal. “I just don’t understand the shot actually,” said Pietersen. “The fine leg is back. You’ve got a deep point, you’ve got a fine leg. He was giving himself a lot of room on the leg stump to hit through the off-side. I dunno, maybe I’m old fashioned – fine leg back, not a good shot.”

The 24-year-old played out seven dot balls in his innings, as SRH fell to 31-1 following Brook’s dismissal.
