Chris Harris
Chris Harris
Born: 20/11/69
Team: Canterbury
ODI debut: 29/11/90
Past World Cups: 1992, 1996, 1999

Right-arm slow-medium bowler
Left-handed batsman

Harris, a veteran of three World Cups, is a very useful slow bowler and his batting in the late middle-order has often proved invaluable.

He began his international career in 1990 when he was selected to play in the first match of a one-day series against Australia.

Harris collected the prized wicket of Geoff Marsh, although Australia went on to win the match by 61 runs.

The 33-year-old made his Test debut two years later although lack of form with the bat prevented him from nailing down a permanent place.

In more than a decade of cricket he has featured a mere 23 times in Tests.

In stark contrast he has more than 200 ODIs to his name, but the emergence of a crop of young all-rounders has put his in place in the XI under threat.
