Summary
In Rhino , cricketer Ryan Harris and co-authors Stephen Gray and Jason Phelan chart Ryan's career from the years spent as a fringe player in South Australia to the behind-the-scenes stories from the Australian Test team and what it took to get there. As a raw-boned fast bowler just out of his teens, Ryan Harris was plucked from suburban grade cricket in 2000 and contracted to play for South Australia's Redbacks. But by 2007 he was the last Redbacks player to be offered a contract. He realised that it was now or never if he wanted his cricket career to flourish
Summary
An eye-catching fast bowler, Ryan Harris seemed destined for journeyman status until he made his international debut in 2009 at the age of 29. By the end of the following year he had become one of Australia's most prized Test and ODI bowlers, but his worst enemy was his own body. A chronic knee injury will be with him until he retires, and in the third Ashes Test at the MCG, he broke a bone in his left ankle that required surgery and ruled him out for half a year. It was testament to how highly the selectors rated Harris that, despite being 31, they wanted him back for the 2011 Test tour of Sri Lanka. When Harris took his 100th test wicket in the 2013 Ashes series against South Africa, his reputation as a quality fast bowler was cemented. In his fast paced autobiography, Harris charts his career from the years spent as a fringe player in South Australia to the behind-the-scenes stories from the Australian test team and what it took to get there.
