Jack Brooks hopes he has found the secret to bowling success down at Taunton – and it has come from inside the Somerset dressing room.
The Yorkshire seamer made a flying start to the summer as the county beat Nottinghamshire at Emerald Headingley by 164 runs early on Monday’s fourth day.
He hit an unbeaten 30 with the bat as the White Rose scraped together 256 in their first innings having been 93-5.
The 33-year-old then struck three times in an excellent first-innings new ball burst as Notts slipped to 39-4 and failed to recover.
Brooks also took two wickets in the second innings as the White Rose comfortably defended a target of 403, finishing with match figures of 5-135.
