Brothers in arms
The name ‘Brookes’ joined the list of brothers to have played first-team cricket for Warwickshire together when bowling all-rounder Ethan made his debut alongside older bro Henry against Essex at Edgbaston in September 2019.
Twenty-year-old Ethan is another graduate from the Warwickshire Academy, a right-arm seamer and a right-hand batsman who has been coming through the Bears pathway since the U10s.
After featuring heavily for the Second XI, as well gaining further experience with Staffordshire, last year he really stepped up into the first team squad. An impressive string of performances in the Royal London Cup included a maiden List A half-century to help set up a stunning win over Leicestershire at Edgbaston.
