Profile

Jack Brooks, aka The Headband Warrior, was one of the leading lights in Yorkshire's Championship win in 2014. His 68 wickets were only outdone by Steve Magoffin, Sussex's Australian seamer, and his full-of-a-length attacking style endeared him to the Yorkshire public as he confirmed not only his talent but a crowd-pleasing nature that refuted suggestions that there were no characters left on the county circuit.
