Harry Brook is aiming to dig in for Yorkshire this summer as he looks to build on an encouraging start to his first-class career.

The former England under 19s captain admits his main aim during a winter spent playing grade cricket in Australia was to improve the patience side of his game.

Brook played for the University of New South Wales club in Sydney, scoring 1,001 runs across 21 innings in two-day, one-day and T20 cricket, including a best of 100 not out.

The 20-year-old batsman would love to break through the 1,000-run barrier in this summer’s County Championship, but knows he must rein in his swashbuckling style at certain times.

Last season, Brook scored 575 runs from 12 Championship appearances, the standout innings being a sparkling 124 in the second innings of an early season win over defending champions Essex at Chelmsford.

Brook has returned to Yorkshire duty from Sydney and is with his team-mates in Potchefstroom, where they are spending a fortnight on pre-season tour.
