A jump of about a feet, stretch of arms = 2 feets at least, and the man himself is over 6 n half. add to it - his attitude of banging the ball into the pitch, to extract any awakward bounce that he can.
Steve Harmison - the England fast bowler, can touch 90 miles per hour of bowling speed, if rhythm is found. if not found - get ready for big test match wides that even best of wicket keepers can't fetch with gloves.
Going back to good bowling form that Harmison is capable of, International batsman struggle to cope up with rising deliveries. Playing drives is out of question, but confident cutters of cricket bowling can adjust n play square.
At 28 (Steve Harmison was born on 23rd October 1978 at Northumberland) he announced his retirement from One day International cricket.. people didn't ask why. ECB knew how lazy (read slow mover) on field he is. They also knew Steve like a new girlfriend - always take time to settle down. One day cricket was little too fast paced for him, with twenty20 Internationals never being inside radar. Right after 2006 Commonwealth Bank triseries in Australia, he declared himself retired from smaller version of cricket.. after 46 tries & 67 wickets in them.
Test matches are on though. and oldest brother of Harmison family (with James & Ben Harmisson who is now playing for Durham county), Steve is looking forward to running through batting sides. His best bowling figues in test match innings is 7 for 12 speaks for itself.
How do you play Steve Harmison? well, I mentioned earlier that square cut specialists will enjoy their stay against him, but doing what Aussies did in 2006 Ashes can help too. Steve Harmison is a home sick person. make him feel more lonely on foreign trips, n you have better chance to not facing him in his best of bowling abilities!!
