"Matt Fisher: I think he is going to be an unbelievable bowler," said his Yorkshire team-mate Tim Bresnan after Fisher's introduction to Championship cricket in April 2015, voicing what Yorkshire - and England - have privately been hoping about this languid, lanky fast bowler in-the-making since he first came on the scene as a teenager.
Fisher, by then a central part of England's U-19 side, became Yorkshire's sixth-youngest Championship debutant when, at 17 years and 161 days old, he faced Nottinghamshire in a draw at Trent Bridge. He also played in 13 T20 Blast matches in 2015, and his debut haul of 5 for 22 against Derbyshire at Headingley in May made him only the third Yorkshire bowler to have taken five wickets in a T20 match.
In June 2013, aged 15 years and 212 days, he had become the youngest post-war county cricketer when he played in a 40-over match against Leicestershire. He was still 15 when he was first included in an England Under-19 squad for a triangular series against Bangladesh and Pakistan that summer.
Afflicted by hamstring problems as he grew rapidly - he tore his left hamstring three times in a year - his 2016 season was a non-event, but his potential remained unquestioned and he was given a final tour with England Under-19s in India in 2017 to help him restate his potential. It also emerged around that time that he was hard of hearing. Yorkshire took great care not to demand too much from him until his body strengthened, but there were occasional reminders late in 2017 that the county still had a talent on their hands.
