Mathew Fisher will lead England's Under 19 ODIs in India
Mathew Fischer has been a Top U19 player for England.


The England U19 Team is all set to tour India for ODI matches in January and February of the coming year. For the tour, Matthew Fisher is named as the caption of the team. The fast bowler will lead in the five ODI matches. Following the ODI tour, the team will play two four day matches, where Max Holden, the young player from Middlesex will take charge of the team. Fisher was the youngest post war cricketer of his county team when he was just 15 years old. He was inducted into the U-19 team in 2013. He debuted Championship Trophy in 2016.

The Chairman of U-19 Selectors, David Graveney said that the tour will be quite challenging for England. He pointed out that, as the Indian team is under the supervision of Rahul Dravid, the home player are tough bets. He also said that, for his team, it would be a good exposure to challenges. The selector also said that Mathew Fischer is a great boost into the team. He recalled the player’s contribution in the 2014 Under 19 World Cup in Dubai. The chairman further said that it would be a good opportunity for Fisher to test his comeback after the hamstring injury.

During the India tour, Andy Hurry will be the coach of the England Team. He is presently the head coach of Young Lions. Batting coach mark Ramprakash and ECB spin bowling coach Peter Such will be the backroom staff for the tour. Players in the England Under 19 Squad are Harry Brook, George Bartlett, Euan Woods, Will Jacks, Delray Rawlins, Ollie Pope, Tom Banton, Liam Patterson-White, Louie Shaw, Aaron Beard, Jack Blatherwick, Henry Brookes and Jack Bruce, alongside Matthew Fisher and Max Holden.
