    Pretty unique bowler. He was like that 55 year old B-grader in your local league who somehow takes 35 poles a season bowling slow nothing balls but he did it in international cricket.

    He has the third most not outs of any ODI batsman ever with 62(behind Dhoni and Bevan, two other finshers) but only produced a career average of 29, well below the level of the other 2 blokes. You'd think with that amount of 'assistance' from not outs he'd at least crack an average of 30.

    Also, that famous 130 he got against us in the '96 QF was actually the only time he passed 80 in international cricket. His next best ODI score was 77* and in tests 71


    Not criticising, I do like him and of course he took 200+ wickets while keeping things tight, but it's interesting

    You have to open with Kallis and move to Javed to 3 and stuck Harris at 7 after Bevan and let Freddie bat 5. You would make a terrible captain.

    Possibly the 2nd greatest fielder of his own bowling too (behind Roger Harper)

    He's basically the ODI version of Ray Illingworth. Handy in the teams he played in but it's hardly a surprise a guy with those numbers isn't mentioned more often.

    one of us is to blame, but lets not talk about names

    haha i put it in quote marks just because i knew you'd take issue with it

    i'm not saying he doesn't deserve his 29 average, you'd just expect someone with his reputation as a 'finisher' and well, the 3rd most not-outs ever to average a little higher right?

    I only guessed the Flintoff one. Half the other posters I’ve never even heard of.

    Very tough between Harris, Chris Cairns, and Oram for the position at 6/7 in the all time NZ ODI team. Cairns was the best of the three at ODI batting but the worst bowler, Oram was the best bowler but worst batsman, while Harris was a jack of all trades and a gun fielder.

    G Turner
    M Guptill/N Astle
    K Williamson
    R Taylor
    M Crowe/R Twose
    B McCullum (wk)
    Cairns/Harris/Oram
    R Hadlee
    D Vettori

    maybe play McMillan down there. Him and Astle could easily combine for 10 overs and of course he's the best batsman of the bunch
