Marcus Harris is grateful for national selector George Bailey’s vote of confidence early in the season, which secured he would be David Warner‘s opening partner for the start of the Ashes. Even though Harris was the incumbent from the India series in January, there was dispute about who would go in opposite Warner at the Gabba when Will Pucovski’s latest concussion ruled him out of contention. However, Bailey had given him the nod a few weeks before the squad was finalised.

Harris scored a century in the season’s first Sheffield Shield match against New South Wales, and despite failing twice in the rematch at the MCG, he is also coming off a great overseas stint with Leicestershire. “About a week before we went over to Sydney for the first Shield game, I probably spoke to Bails [George Bailey],” Harris said. “We just had a fantastic discussion.”

It was just nice to be able to communicate with a selector about what I was doing and what they were thinking about me. “Knowing where you stand as a player is beneficial, and having the support of others is even better. It puts your mind at ease a little bit; obviously, coming into a huge series like the Ashes, your mind may race with the amount of attention paid to it, so not having to worry about that for almost a month building up to the first game has been fairly good.”

As Australia seeks to solidify an opening duo – at least for the remainder of Warner’s career – Bailey also stated that. Marcus Harris , who has an average of 23.77 in 10 Tests, will be given a chance.

The pair got off to a shaky start against England in the. 2019 Ashes, when Stuart Broad’s round-the-wicket line caused a slew of issues, but they combined. 89 in the second innings against India in Brisbane earlier this year. “David brings a lot of vitality to the relationship and the crisis,” Harris added.

“Clearly, he has ruled world cricket for a long time.” As a result, he relieves a lot of the pressure, and you don’t feel obligated to score. I know we had a tough series in England, but we put up. 80 or 90 in the second innings against India.” When you can play with another player, it takes a lot of the strain off of you, making your work a little easier. Hopefully, over the following period of time, we can construct something very good – we’ll get through this summer first.”

After the rigors of the series in England two years ago, where he replaced. Cameron Bancroft after two Tests, Harris feels better prepared for his latest spell in the Test team.

It remains to be seen whether England‘s quicks can provide the same kind of challenge in. Australia as they did at home, but Harris is confident in his ability to do so. “Coming around the wicket is a strategy that a lot of teams have used against me now,” he remarked. “I feel like I’ve put in a lot of effort on the technical part of my game as well as tactically to battle that. The proof will be in the pudding on. December 8, but it feels like I’ve put in a lot of effort and it’s paid off.”
