MATTHEW FISHER has pinpointed the moment which led him to believe this current group of Yorkshire players can achieve something special in the near future - last season’s County Championship landslide win over Somerset at Emerald Headingley.

The White Rose seamer was asked recently to pick out a game which stands out as his favourite above any other he has played in.

His five-wicket T20 debut against Derbyshire in 2015 and the 2017 Championship home victory over Warwickshire, got honourable mentions. But it was last July’s innings and 73-run success over pre-game Division One leaders Somerset which tops the lot.

Fisher, 21 at the time, impressed with four new ball wickets across the two innings and also contributed 20 down the order to a first-innings score of 520.

Tom Kohler-Cadmore and Harry Brook both hit centuries during the weekend which saw England beat New Zealand in a thrilling World Cup final at Lord’s, while Keshav Maharaj claimed 10 wickets in the match.

“In my career, that’s the best win we’ve had and the best feeling after a game,” he said. “I really enjoyed that. It was such a brilliant game.

“We’d previously won Championship games, but that one stands out because I contributed a decent amount and also we beat a really good team in such a commanding fashion. They were top of the league at the time.

“I was a drinks runner quite a lot when we won the Championship titles back-to-back in 2014 and 2015. The second year, I played three games. And I saw that team dominate others with the way they played.

“So that game is my favourite because it’s the first real time I’ve been involved in a victory which made me think, ‘Wow, that was like 2014/15 when we dominated’.

“It made me realise just how much optimism and hope we’ve got for this group of players.

“If we can play like that on a more consistent basis, then we can do something special.

“It would be a dream come true to win a title. Hopefully this group of players can achieve that in the next few seasons.”
