Yorkshire’s enigmatic fast bowler made his mark early. In 2013, he became the youngest post-war county cricketer in a 40-over match.
Matt took to the field against Leicestershire aged just 15 years and 212 days. Later that year, still a comparative youngster, he joined England U19s for a triangular series against Bangladesh and Pakistan. Two years on, in 2015, Matt became Yorkshire's sixth-youngest Championship debutant when he faced Nottinghamshire. On his T20 Blast debut he took a five-for against Derbyshire – the only Yorkshire bowler to do so. Matt made his maiden Championship five-for in late 2017.
Internationally, the 24-year old is starting to realise his prodigious potential. In December of last year, Tom was included in the England Lions team that faced Australia while he has just been named in England's Test squad for their series against the West Indies.
Matt’s family celebrated the news extremely enthusiastically. Unbeknownst to him, when Matt was 14, they placed a £100 bet that he would one day represent England at odds of 50-1!
