Harris rearing to go in Ashes following comeback from injury

Sydney: Right arm fast bowler Ryan Harris has reportedly come out of his injury to buckle up for the Ashes series.

The contest for places in Australia`s first Test attack begins on Wednesday and Harris is hopeful of pressing his case in Taunton after taking five wickets and bowling 33 overs for the match in Australia A`s final tour game against Gloucestershire.

Harris and Jackson Bird had been recovering from Achilles and back injuries and were under careful management plan but with the Australia A`s final tour game have emerged unscathed although a bit sore.

Harris said that he bowled four or five overs more than he was supposed to do but he felt fine and had a good chat with the physiotherapist adding that Bird is stiff and sore yet they both managed to come through with the injuries and bowled some good spells.

Harris said that if he were to play the first Test, it would be ideal to bowl 20-30 overs in Taunton and then take a couple of days off to prepare for the first Test.
