MAR­CUS HAR­RIS

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING -

IT’S been an odd first 12 months in Test cricket for Har­ris. His 258 runs against In­dia last sum­mer — the most by any Aus­tralian — rep­re­sented a more than solid start to life at this level. How­ever, his next nine in­nings (spread across the home series against Sri Lanka and the Ashes in Eng­land) brought just 127 runs, at a pal­try av­er­age of just 14.11. The chal­lenge for the selec­tors is to es­tab­lish whether the fight­ing start that Har­ris showed against the world No.1s is a truer re­flec­tion of his skill and abil­ity than his strug­gles in Eng­land.
