Player Biography

Middlesex paceman James Harris has signed for Kent on loan.

The 26-year-old Welshman came through the ranks at Glamorgan before joining the reigning county champions in 2013.

The six-foot fast bowler has played for England Under-19s and England Lions and taken 367 first class wickets and 12 five-wicket hauls.

He took 69 County Championship wickets in 2015 including 9 for 34 against Durham at Lord’s in May before claiming 16 wickets in seven red-ball appearances as Middlesex lifted the Division One title last season.

James Harris said: “I am pleased to be starting the season with Kent and am grateful to the two counties for making it happen.

“I look forward to helping get the Kent season off to a positive start in the coming weeks.”

He was the first 17-year-old to take a seven-wicket haul and earned a full call-up to the England T20 squad in 2012 although he was not selected.
