  • Marcus Harris ran afoul of frustrated coach Justin Langer at Western Australia in part because he would so often perish in the 20s after appearing to have done enough to build a substantial innings.

  • Harris appeared reasonably comfortable against the Indian quicks but his innings began to falter against the incisive Ashwin who repeatedly probed the batsman’s defence on and about off stump.
  • Harris nudged a single, pushed a two and played the two expansive drives for boundaries as he faced five overs from the prolific spinner.
  • Harris pushed forward tentatively, got an inside edge on to his pad and saw the ball balloon to close catcher Murali Vijay to end his first experience in the middle.
