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, in which he also contributed significantly, 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, including seven wickets in the first innings, and captain Steve Patterson claimed the 400th wicket of his first-class career.
