    Harry owned, there was a period of like six months where he was a gun batsman. Also one ODI against England I remember he was getting insane inswing bowling at like 80k.

    The average and strike rate weren't flash but he had an economy rate of 4.28 and would often dry up runs in the middle overs. That's an excellent economy for a 5th bowler.

    The dreaded Harris-Larsen combo used to be so hard to get away in the middle overs, especially with those gun NZ close in fielders.

    My fav Harris game was definitely in the World Cup 96. Mark Waugh then played one of his best ever ODI innings to win Australia a spot in the semi. From memory Harris bowling was tough to face that day too. Basically one of the games where id have no issue with MoTM going to the losing team.

    Yeah his 130 in that game seemed like the craziest example of someone punching above their weight I can think of

    His second best ODI score in over 200 innings was 77. He didn't pass 50 any other innings In 1996

    But just comes out 3 for nothing in a WC QF against McGrath, Warne, Reiffel and Fleming and blasts 130

    On paper that's basically our best ever ODI attack as far as I care

    Needs to be talked about more than it is


    Edit - for some reason Reiffel and Fleming bowled 9 overs between them that game while Bevan and Mark Waugh bowled 18?

    Expected the track to turn. That entire WC was affected by dew though. Don't forget that when you try to make sense of how Warne came in as the pinch hitter and smashed the spinners around.

    Also averages 70 with the bat in T20s with one 100 and 23 with the ball at an economy of 6.25

    Basically the bradman of t20s.

    Arguably, misreading the dew cost Australia that World Cup final as well. Electing to bat instead of bowl was definitely the wrong choice.

    Strongly disagree here. There was 3 ODI series between SL and AUS in Asia (96-99). SL won all the 3. SL was very strong ODI side in 96-99 period.

    There was no way anyone was going to deny Aravinda de Silva that World Cup trophy
