'Injury-plagued' Harris doesn't want to be 'wrapped in cotton wool'

Sydney, Aug 29 (ANI): Australian Ashes hero Ryan Harris is reportedly keen to keep going and does not want to be 'wrapped in cotton wool' despite being hit hard by knee, ankle, shoulder and hip injuries since breaking into the Australian Test team in 2010.

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, the injury-plagued paceman was the stand-out bowler of the Ashes, taking 24 wickets at an average of 20 in four Tests, although Cricket Australia (CA) is keen to take a cautious approach leading into the home Ashes series, starting in November.

However, the Queensland fast bowler believes that he will be fit to play with Brisbane Heat in the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in India, if CA permits him, adding that he feels that he needs more bowling to keep himself in top shape for the return Ashes series in Australia.

Harris also said that the Champions Trophy provides the competition that he craves.

The Champions League starts on September 18 while Brisbane Heat's first match is on September 22 against Trinidad and Tobago, the report added. (ANI)
