Sydney: Jan 1, 2014

 

Veteran Australian fast bowler Ryan Harris has said that the Ashes hosts are now in a position to create their own history given their 4-0 lead over England.

 

Harris has taken inspiration from Australia’s Ashes victory in 2006-07, which he termed as an unique series, and although the squad at that time went on to win 16 Tests in a row, he revealed that coach Darren Lehmann advised them to create their own history by becoming the third side to clean sweep an Ashes and carry on that form to South Africa.

 

According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Harris said that it is because of these possibilities that he is so keen to play in the last Test at the Sydney Cricket Ground (SCG), not just to know that he have got through five Tests, but to be there to finish the job which they started back in Brisbane.

 

Stating that it is an incredible feeling to be up on the podium when the Ashes urn is presented, Harris also said that he is confident that he would be fit to play after the few extra days off following the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) win, adding that he is feeling very fresh and ready to go at the moment.

 

Harris further said that Australia should be proud of the way they have turned things around this year, for which they have worked ”bloody hard”, adding that now they have to make sure that they start the new year on the same note
