Steve Harmison is a constant source of bad press these days. Some suggest Steve Harmison is a disruptive element in the dressing room if we believe what we hear to be true. Without his strong allegiance to Andrew Flintoff and immense popularity in the dressing room (Harmison has a titantic sized dvd collection on tour making him very popular), could Steve Harmison have played such a large part in the player power struggle and the Moores/Pietersen saga??
Another factor doesn’t bode well for him – he hasn’t been firing for England in the Test arena for quite some time and his place in the squad is a subject of constant debate. Having said that whenever he plays for his county side Durham Harmison fires on all cylinders taking wickets like candy from a baby.
Ahead of the West Indies tour it’s definitely worthwhile to remind ourselves what Steve Harmison is capable of . . .
Steve Harmison 7-12 versus West Indies Jamaica, March 2004
Harmison produced a spell of bowling that a Marshall, Greenwich, Ambrose or Walsh would have been proud of tearing through the West Indies who found themselves all out for 47.
Let’s hope Steve Harmison is back and firing for the Ashes starting with some heroics in the Caribbean.
