Ryan Harris Profile

A well-built, skiddy fast bowler, Ryan Harris graduated from Australia's Cricket Academy in 2002 and went on to represent South Australia for most of his domestic career, and was ultimately blessed with the opportunity to don national colours.

Making his first-class debut in 2001-02, Harris arrived as a surprisingly fast bowler who bowled at a menacing speed. His impressive figures of 8-140 against Western Australia in 2006-07 made him South Australia's leading wicket-taker that season. He went on to represent Queensland, before signing up with Sussex in county cricket, only to realize that he had breached the county's contract by signing as a local for the former. He then signed up to play for Yorkshire in 2010.

'Ryano' made his international debut in a one-day match against South Africa in 2009. He did not have a memorable debut though. His moment came exactly a year later. Acting as a replacement in the side, he bowled brilliantly against Pakistan, scalping 13 wickets in 3 ODIs, which eventually led to his Test debut against New Zealand. His bowling figures in windy conditions were proof enough of his strike-power. Harris also played in the Indian Premier League in 2009, where he represented the eventual winners, Hyderabad. He was later bought by Mohali in 2011 and was part of Brisbane Heat in the Big Bash League. Harris made his T20I debut against the West Indies in 2010 and was also part of the 2010 World Twenty20 side, replacing the speedster, Brett Lee. However, injuries to the knee restricted his chances of a permanent spot in the national team, and he was consequently dropped in favour of other fit bowlers.

Like Shane Watson, Harris had to eat his own pie of injuries over his career. However, the selectors kept faith in him and provided him with further opportunities whenever he returned to full fitness, and boy, didn't he repay them with every dime! Harris proved to be one of the best bowlers for Australia during their Ashes loss in England, in 2013 and his body, surprisingly stood by him during the return Ashes later in the same year. For the first time in his career, he played a continuous string of 5 Test matches and bowled exceedingly well in each!
