Matthew Revis is an all-rounder who earned his maiden first-team chance at the top of the order in County Championship cricket in September 2019.
Right-hander Revis, aged 17 at the time – he’s now 19, opened the batting alongside Adam Lyth in the defeat against Kent at Emerald Headingley, a fixture dominated by Darren Stevens, a man in his early forties.
He posted scores of nine and nought. But, in totalling nine, he batted for 75 minutes and faced 54 balls, an invaluable experience for his development.
That opportunity came a week after he had amassed a brilliant 177 in a second-team fixture against Sussex at Hove. The home attack included international experience in the form of Reece Topley and Danny Briggs.
Revis, also a right-arm seamer, was then handed more first-team exposure towards the end of 2020 in the form of a pair of Vitality Blast appearances against Lancashire at Old Trafford and Derbyshire at Headingley. He posted nought not out at the end of the first and didn’t bat or bowl in the second.
Revis, Steeton-born, has spent parts of the 2020/21 winter on the England Young Lions training programme down at Loughborough alongside team-mates Harry Duke and Sam Wisniewski. Andrew Gale and Rich Pyrah were also part of the Lions coaching staff.
He was educated at Ilkley Grammar School and Sedbergh School, the latter which was a path Harry Brook took.
Revis first wore the White Rose in Under 14s cricket in 2015 and has since played for the Under 15s and Under 17s.
He made Yorkshire Academy debut in 2018, the same summer he made his bow for the county’s second team in Twenty20 cricket.
Revis then played one-day and Championship cricket at that level for the first time in 2019, a summer which yielded another step up in that aforementioned Kent fixture.
He notes Andrew Flintoff as his cricketing hero.
