AJ Harris

Harris is a reliable right-arm medium pacer who has served both Derbyshire and Nottinghamshire well during his decade in the first-class game.

Known for his steady line and length, “AJ” has the honour of having over 400 first-class and 150 one-day victims, although his ability with the ball is not matched by his prowess with the bat, as a single-figure average testifies.

He is also one of a handful of players on the world circuit to have been timed out - a form of dismissal dealt out to batsmen who take too long to reach the wicket. Harris was given out by this method during a pre-season game against Durham University in 2003.

Harris took 49 wickets in first-class cricket in 2005, including three five-wicket hauls, at an average of 26 to help Notts lift the County Championship.

He claimed a further 36 wickets in the championship the following season, but injury limited him to just five games in 2007.

Awarded a benefit year by Notts in 2008, his ninth season with the club. Harris signed for Gloucestershire on loan until the end of the season in June but a side strain cut that short.

Having recovered from the injury, he moved on loan to Worcestershire in late August until the end of the campaign. However, Notts announced he would be released from his contract at the end of the season.

He was picked up by Leicestershire on a one-year deal in October.
