In December 2022, he made his international debut for England in a Test match against Pakistan in Rawalpindi.

In 2023, Harry Brook was selected to replace Jason Roy in England's Cricket World Cup squad due to Roy's back injury. Despite being a surprise omission from the provisional squad, Harry's inclusion was based on his performance in the Ashes test series against Australia. However, he faced challenges during the ODI series against New Zealand.

Harry Brook's decision to withdraw from the IPL 2024 due to personal reasons marked a setback for Delhi Capitals. This move made him the fourth England cricketer to pull out of the tournament, prompting discussions for a replacement player.
