Re: Harris - broken thumb.

Considering James Harris previously appeared to be one of the few fast bowlers at Middlesex about whom there were no concerns about form, fitness and the prospect of imminently going on international duty, and considering he is reigning player of the season, the last thing we needed was him getting injured.

At least it gives at least one other fast bowler an opportunity, although whether they will be able to bowl and bat as well as Harris remains to be seen. Unless we come across a pitch expected to be more conducive to spin than usual, I can’t see us reacting to this injury by bringing in another batsman or spinner instead of replacing Harris with another fast bowler.

The club's announcement about this injury lists only our next two matches as being ones that Harris will definitely miss, so hopefully his lay-off won’t be as long as 4-6 weeks.
