Named captain of the England U19 team for part of the tour India in the New Year. Congrats to him on that.

Also, didn't know if it was common knowledge, I certainly didn't know but he's deaf in one ear. Even more credit to the young man for overcoming obstacles like this at an early age.

Great news, but with a caviat.

This would mark Fisher out as a future Yorkshire captain. Richard Dawson, Slow Joe Sayers & Azeem Rafiq were all FYCs. The first two fell by the wayside whilst Azeem had to leave the club to recover his mojo.

Don't see Matthew as a future Yorkshire captain. For the same reason that Joe Root won't be.

More interested to see some young Yorkshire lads in the squad. I was lead to believe we were going through a dry patch but when you factor in Barnes, Brooks, Fisher etc maybe the conveyor belt is still in full flow.

Would be great if Brooks could push through. A home grown batsman is exactly what we need.

Harry Brook is still only 17. He will be heavily involved with 'A' levels next year. He is indeed Yorkshire born
having learned his early cricket at Burley-in-Wharfedale. However he is now away at school outside the county. In term time the school will lay claim to his cricketing services. Only during the holidays and on occasion will he be able to concentrate fully on his development at Yorkshire.
Nevertheless he is full of promise, appearing to have a full range of shots and an excellent opening batsman's temperament. He has the additional welcome advantage of being right-handed !

Couple of interesting links below with a bit more info about Harry. The Ilkley Gazette one is now a couple of years old but worth a read.

If Harry Brook's at Sedbergh School he's only "outside the county" if you recognise the 1974 Keith Joseph reorganisation of local govt. I would have thought most readers of this site consider Sedbergh still to be part of the West Riding ...

Even more to the point, Simon, in the Rules of Yorkshire CCC the County is DEFINED as that existing before the boundary changes.

More indications of how well he is thought of, Matthew Fisher named in the MCC squad for the season opener v the Champion county.

Looking forward to watching him play some cricket for Yorkshire again in the coming season.

Fisher's England under-19s had an impressive win in a tight game in India today. Matthew took four wickets and scored a few runs.

And Brook made 50 but the star of the show was a lad from Sussex called Delray Rawlins

Really good to see Fisher and Brook doing well.

Whatever else happens to the Yorkshire line up this coming summer, I shan't be sorry if England calls, injuries etc. mean that we get to to see a lot of Fisher, Rhodes and plenty more of Leaning. A bit of Brook in the 1st or 2nd XI, when school's out, would be good as well.

Leaning was given ample time to contribute last season.

Not in the CC, he had an average of 17.81. Our nr 11 had a better batting average (Brooks 25).

Lots of players have a below par season. Plenty of time for him to come back.

I think you may be rushing to judgment on Jack Leaning. He has played only two full seasons for Yorkshire, showing real promise in the first but slipping back a little in his second. Surely he deserves more time. Let's not forget that he was chosen as Wisden's young cricketer of the year after his first season. I believe I am right in saying (though open to correction) that he reached his first 1000 first class runs for Yorkshire in fewer innings than Root, Bairstow or Ballance. The management and coaching staff certainly believe in him as he received his county cap at the end of last season.
