Pretty good, but he can do better still. We won’t really be satisfied until he runs through a side.
That’s what Steve Harmison’s supposed to do – the Dreamland Steve Harmison who we regularly summon up when things aren’t going England’s way. The not-at-all-real Steve Harmison who embodies English cricketing optimism.
Dreamland Steve Harmison can turn round ANY situation. Dreamland Steve Harmison wouldn’t be satisfied with a mere three wickets in an entire day. Sri Lanka would be following-on without England actually batting if Dreamland Steve Harmison had anything to say about it.
