Marcus Harris is an Australian cricketer who was born in Perth on July 21, 1992. He bats first for the left-handed side. He holds the record for being the youngest Australian to score 150 runs in First Class cricket.
In the 2010/11 season, Harris made his First Class debut for Western Australia. He became the youngest Australian batsman to score 150 in FC cricket at the age of 18 in his third match, beating the record of former legendary batsman Clem Hill. He stayed with the same team until 2016, when he moved to Victoria.
Before leaving his first-ever domestic cricket side, he had already made his List A debut. He is now playing for Victoria in the Sheffield Shield, which has won him recognition from coaches such as Justin Langer.
He improved his inclusion in the national Test squad against the visiting Indian team led by Virat Kohli by scoring an undefeated 250 in the 2018 Sheffield Shield.
Harris made his Test debut against India in Adelaide on December 6, 2018, only a few years after making steady progress under Langer. In response to India’s first-inning total of 250, Australia scored 235. Batting at No. 2, the rookie scored 26 points. In their second innings, the visitors scored 307 to set a record of 323. Harris scored 26 runs once again when they fell 31 runs short of the mark.
From 2014 to 2016, he was a member of the Perth Scorchers in the Big Bash League. In 14 games for the Perth-based franchise, he scored 213 runs, including one half-century.
He then joined the Melbourne Renegades, where he remains today. In 11 matches for the Renegades, he has scored 324 runs, including two half-centuries.
