Matthew Fisher believes that his extended stay in India will help his all-round game ahead of the 2020 campaign.

Fisher and fellow bowlers Duanne Olivier, Matthew Waite and Ben Coad arrived in Mumbai with Bowling Coach Richard Pyrah and Lead Physiotherapist Kunwar Bansil five days ahead of the rest of the touring party.

The bowling quartet began their warm weather training at Parsee Gymkhana and were joined by batsman Tom Kohler-Cadmore earlier in the week following his return from England Lions duty in Australia.

Fisher has taken plenty of positives from an extended period away and believes that it will benefit his all-around game going into the 2020 season.

“I’ve really enjoyed it,” Fisher said. “We have got outside with our spikes on and have bowled a few overs.

“We have had quite a lot of batting as well. The bowlers don’t get a lot of time in the nets sometimes, so it has been nice to have a couple of hours each day with the Indian net bowlers. They literally bowl all day, so it has been really good for our batting as well.
