Glamorgan seamer James Harris has set his sights on starting the new season despite still recovering from a recent hernia operation.
Harris underwent surgery last month but has already returned to the nets and is aiming to make the opening County Championship clash with Leicestershire at Grace Road starting on April 5.
The injury forced Harris out of England Lions action in Sri Lanka in what has been a frustrating winter for the 21-year-old.
“It has been quite a while since I have been bowling in the nets,” said Harris. “I had the operation just over a month ago and the rehabilitation has gone pretty well and I am back bowling again.
“The plan is to be fit for the start of the season. I hope to play some pre-season games and get enough bowling under my belt to play in Leicester.”
The England Lions seamer will travel with the rest of the Glamorgan squad to La Manga this week for five days of warm weather training and will hope to figure in some of Glamorgan’s five friendly games.
“I will be able to get outdoors and do more stuff and It is invaluable with the weather here being quite unpredictable,” he added. “It is nice to be able to jet off and so some warm weather training.”
