Bio

Debuting for Western Australia in 2011 as an 18-year-old, opener Marcus Harris entered the record books in just his third first-class match as the youngest Australian to score a first-class 150.

His 157 against Queensland broke a 115-year record held by former Australia batsman Clem Hill and established Harris as a player to watch.

Twelve months later, Harris reached triple figures for the second time in his career when he struck 114 against South Australia before he yo-yoed in and out of the side.

He started the 2014-15 season well, making 121 from 112 balls in a 50-over match against the touring United Arab Emirates side.

Harris made the move to Victoria for the 2016-17 domestic season.
