James Alexander Russell Harris
(born 16 May 1990 in Swansea
) is a cricketer
who is on the staff of Glamorgan
. An all-rounder, Harris is a right arm seam bowler
and right-handed batsman. He was the youngest person ever to play for Glamorgan 2nd XI, aged 14 years and 353 days and the youngest person to have played for Wales Minor Counties, when he took 3/48 against the Netherlands. In 2006 he captained England Under-16s team and at the age of 15 signed up for Glamorgan.
He made his first class debut in 2007, at the age of 17. Against Gloucestershire, he finished with figures of 12-118, meaning he became the youngest player ever to take 10 or more wickets in a County Championship match, taking 5-52 in the second innings to follow up his first-innings 7-66.
Amazingly Harris rapidly followed this up by becoming the youngest Glamorgan player to score a half century with the bat as he posted an impressive 87 not out in a record 9th wicket partnership of 185 with Robert Croft
against Nottinghamshire at Swansea
, in only his fourth first class match.
On 28 April 2010 he became the youngest Glamorgan
player to take 100 first class wickets for the county when he claimed the wicket of Phil Jacques
in the victory against Worcestershire
