Matthew Fisher was overjoyed to put his name on the Scarborough honours board after returning career-best figures of five for 41 against Somerset.

Fisher blew away Somerset’s lower order to bowl the visitors out for 134 before Harry Brook’s unbeaten 79 gave Yorkshire a 25-run lead with four wickets remaining.

Fisher hopes Yorkshire can kick on to a lead of three figures.

“My name is on the honours board with the tape and a sharpie pen and hopefully it will be on there properly soon!” he said.

“Looking at their line-up they have a really long batting line-up but we stuck to hitting good areas, we were patient and got the rewards.

“That today is the beauty of Harry Brook as a cricketer, he does what a lot of people can’t do. Hopefully he can kick on and get three figures on the game where he has received his county cap.

“I don’t think it is a pitch where you are every in, there’s a ball with your name on it. If we can get 100 plus ahead we’d be looking at that. We have good depth and hopefully we can get up to a good lead.”

Fisher was also delighted with the response to the disappointment of being unable to force a win in Southampton last week, which leaves Yorkshire up against it in Division One.

“We spoke after Southampton and we could not have done anything different. We played a really good game and it was not meant to be,” Fisher added.

“We feel a bit hard done by with the points tally but we know we have to do more than everyone else. If we play how we can play we will win games and be up there so that’s all we can do.”
