Finally, Australia’s Test quick Ryan Harris has marked his return into Cricket after an eight month injury lay-off, where both his knees were operated in order to prolong his international career for some more time.

Playing in his first match for Queensland Bulls, Ryan Harris took a total of 7 wickets in the match and even scored a half-century to help his team win the match against New South Wales by 188 runs. Harris was on fire with the ball particularly in the second innings as he picked up 4 wickets, all of New South Wales mainstay batsmen including Nick Larkin, Scott Henry, Nic Maddinson and Kurtis Patterson.

Before injury also, Ryan Harris was in stunning form for Australia as he picked up 22 wickets in the Ashes 2013-14, which Australia won 5-0. During Australia’s tour to South Africa earlier this year, Harris struggled in the first two Test matches due to injury, but out of nowhere came hard at South Africa in the third test and took 7 wickets to register Australia a series victory against South Africa.

Australia would hope that Ryan Harris performs well in the further Sheffield matches and gets fully ready for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy starting December 4th. Michael Clarke is already doubtful for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and there are also question marks over Brad Haddin’s fitness. If both of them are to miss it, Ryan Harris’s presence would be very much crucial to provide the seniority part to the young Australian lineup.
