Harry Brook, a rising cricket sensation from England, has openly acknowledged the terrible remarks he made during the 2023 Indian Premier League season.

Harry Brook’s rise in international cricket earned him a lucrative spot in the Indian Premier League, with Sunrisers Hyderabad acquiring him for a hefty sum of Rs 13.25 crore.

The pressure mounted as questions arose about his ability to justify the significant price tag attached to his name.
Harry Brook’s admission
While Brook experienced highs and lows during his IPL career, a memorable century at Eden Gardens stands out as an indication of his potential. But a later decline in performance overshadowed the encouraging beginning, drawing criticism from trolls on social media.
Brook admitted, “I was an idiot, and I said that stupid thing in an interview, which I regret a little bit,” seeing how social media has affected his mental health. He clarified that the issue was made worse by the fact he was in India and not in the comfort of his usual routine. He remarked, “I find myself just scrolling through Twitter or Instagram and seeing things you just don’t want to see.”
Realizing the detrimental effect on his mental health, Brook took a bold step by deleting social media apps from his phone. Despite still having active accounts, he has handed over the reins to someone else to manage them on his behalf.
