Matt Fisher, the Under-19 fast bowler from England is dropped from the team for the upcoming four-day series in Nagpur. England will campaign against India in the series without the fast bowler who is also the captain of the team. The bowler was injured in Mumbai ODI on his hamstring. However, England reported that it is not for any recurrence of his previous hamstring problems.
Fisher was struggling with intense pain after the Mumbai series. But he will continue to be with the team for another week even if he is receiving treatment. Fisher is scheduled to join the preparation camp at Headingley after the India tour. In his absence, Max Holden will head the team.
Holden is the batsman from Middlesex who has been playing with Northants since the beginning of the season. Fisher, who plays for Yorkshire, is highly acclaimed for his powerful bowling. He has been a crucial player in the junior team. The 18 years old player is the sixth youngest Yorkshire championship debutant. In his first match, Fisher played against Nottinghamshire culminating the match as a draw at Trent Bridge. In 2015, he struck an excellent figure of 5 wickets for 22 in a T20 Blast match against Derbyshire. He became the third bowler with a five-wicket haul in Yorkshire. Hamstring issues have been the latest problem for the player. In 2016, he injured his hamstring in three different events.
Max Holden, the 19 years old player, was with the helm of the team even before in 40 over tournaments. He had his ODI debut in the last match against India at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai. The bowling all-rounder, he also plays as a batsman. In the latest match, the young player attained a strike rate of 23.08 while batting and bowled five overs at an economy of 4. In the ongoing series, India is holding the dominant position under the able guidance of Rahul Dravid. Under-19 India team has been the strongest in the game currently.
