Steve Harmison is a tall, lanky English fast bowler who is capable of bowling in pace excess of 90 kph. Being 6'4 tall, Harmison has the potential to extract bounce and pace from the wicket. Many have compared him to the West Indies great Curtly Ambrose. He made a quiet start to his international career but really picked up as the time went by.

Harmison was at his peak between 2004-2006, as he troubled the most batsmen around the world with his lethal deliveries. Then came injuries which put inroads in the tall Durham seamer's career. Shockingly, just three months before the 2007 World Cup, Harmison announced retirement from ODIs to prolong his Test career.

Harmison has been criticized by many pundits for his below par performances on away tour and have always been termed as a homesick player. With youngsters like Broad and Anderson making their mark in the team, it's a tough challenge for the ‘Harmy' to maintain a regular spot in the playing eleven.
