Australia captain Michael Clarke says that Australia will miss the services of Ryan Harris, who retired a few days back, following a prolonged knee injury. Harris missed the ICC Cricket World Cup 2015 to be fit for the upcoming Ashes 2015, but he suffered a niggle during one of the recent tour games against England and Harris decided to retire after that.

Harris believes that he no longer had control over his injuries and feels that he has made the right call. Clarke too praised Harris saying that Harris was his No.1 go to bowler. Clarke went on to say that he feels as though he has played his whole career with Harris even though the fast bowler has played in just 27 Tests.
