Harris recovery going to plan
James Harris is on course to be fully fit for the start of the county season, according to Glamorgan first XI coach Matthew Mott.
The 21-year-old seamer sustained a reoccurrence of a groin strain while training with the England Performance Programme in Potchefstroom, South Africa, during December. Medical tests showed that his discomfort was the result of inflammation around his pelvic area.
That injury ruled Harris out of England Lions’ tour of Bangladesh this month. The second leg of that trip, to Sri Lanka, also came too soon for him. He is now undertaking a rehabilitation programme under the close supervision of Glamorgan's medical staff.
Harris is expected to take part in Glamorgan’s pre-season plans: a five-day training camp in La Manga during mid-March ahead of friendlies with Somerset, Worcestershire, Gloucestershire and Kent.
The Welsh county then face Oxford MCCU before their first competitive game of 2012: versus Leicestershire at Grace Road in the LV= County Championship from April 5.
Mott said: "James is going to look to get as strong and as fit as he can during the course of the next few weeks.
“He has got a lot of time now before the County Championship season starts in the first week of April. He should be fit and strong and ready to go.”
