Lolloping ganglatron of mental fragility, Steve Harmison, took a hat-trick against champions Sussex over the weekend. We’re more interested in his opening spell during Sussex’s first innings though, where at one point he’d taken 2-7 off 11 overs.
Moping about in county cricket in a state of permanent ill-temper will do Harmison the power of good. If he gets to the point where he not only thinks he deserves to be in the England side, but is offended by being omitted, he’ll have attained a level of confidence he hasn’t seen in years.
The Steve Harmison who we all wanted Steve Harmison to become might yet come about. Not for a while though. Everyone look away and pretend you’re not interested.
This EXCLUSIVE photograph of the aftermath of Harmison’s hat trick was sent in by 668 Neighbour of the Beast. We haven’t had an exclusive since those ‘postal covers‘ two years ago – and they were only exclusive by default. No-one else could be bothered publishing anything about them.
