Bio

After a lengthy apprenticeship in domestic cricket, injury meant the beginning of Ryan Harris’s international career was as frustrating as it was impressive.

After taking six wickets on Test debut in 2010, Harris’s ageing body meant he was restricted to just 12 Tests in the following two years.

But when he finally got some luck on the injury front for the 2013 Ashes tour of the UK, Harris’s true class was allowed to shine through.

He took 24 wickets in four Tests in England before picking up another 22 scalps in the return series in Australia.

Then came arguably his finest moment when he steered Australia to a famous series win in South Africa with a seven-wicket haul in Cape Town.

With his battered right knee in desperate need of intensive surgery, a wounded Harris produced one last heroic effort to bowl Australia to victory with just 27 balls to spare.
