Ashes 2013 – Ryan Harris to miss Final Test

Australia are considering resting strike bowler Ryan Harris for final Test at Oval on August 21.

Australia Coach Darren Lehmann is considering Harris to out from the final test, however the performance of harris has been outstanding in the last three Tests.

The 33-year-old, Harris is currently Australia’s leading wicket-taker, with 20 at an average of 19.25, but coach does not want to take any risks ahead of the return series in Australia.

“We’d love him to (play at the Oval). He’s exceptional,” he said.

“He’s had three in a row. It would be good if he gets four in a row.

“But if there’s any doubt of not getting through, he won’t play. To be perfectly honest the way the scenario is now we’ll be extra careful with him.

“We’ve got to make sure he’s right for the next Test series as well. He’s so valuable to us as we’ve seen in the previous few games.”
