England Under-19 call-up for Yorkshire's Matthew Fisher
10:07am Thursday 3rd October 2013 in Sport
Yorkshire Cricket Club totally dominate England’s Under-19 World Cup squad for a winter tour of the United Arab Emirates.
They have five players in the squad, including York teenager Matthew Fisher, whose debut for the Tykes in July against Leicestershire Foxes in a Yorkshire Bank 40 tie at Scarborough’s North Maribne Road ground earned him the distinction of being the youngest post-War player to play in a competitive county match.
Fisher, who plays for Sheriff Hutton Bridge in the Hunters York & District Senior Cricket League, was aged 15 years and 212 days at the time.
He is joined in the England touring squad by county colleagues – Stamford Bridge all-rounder Will Rhodes, Karl Carver, Josh Straw and Jonny Tattersall.
Also included is Surrey batsman Dominic Sibley, who has been rewarded for his record-breaking innings against Yorkshire.
The 18-year-old became the youngest double centurion in county championship history when he struck 242 in the final game of the season at the Kia Oval against the Tykes.
Yorkshire also have two players in the U17s squad.
Jared Warner and Mosun Hussain are with the squad that will train at Loughborough this winter and then travel to Sri Lanka for a training camp at Easter, also including matches against their Sri Lankan counterparts.
