English team will stay No.1 for a long period: Harmison

Ex- English fast bowler Steve Harmison thinks the present team will rule at the top of world cricket for yrs. Harmison, alongwith Andrew Flintoff, Marcus ­Trescothick and Paul Collingwood, performed a vital part in wresting back the Ashes in 2005.

The Andrew Strauss-led side not just received the Ashes on Australian earth the very first time in 24 yrs but also replaced India as the # 1 Test team. Harmison said Strauss along with chief coach Andy Flower has done amazing things with the side.”It is just amazing what the 2 Andys have done with the English squad,” Harmison was mentioned as saying by The Mirror.

“But I feel Andrew Strauss truly has been the person above all others though who’s led this team forward.”He took over in ­tough situations in the West Indies in 2009 and he has led with strength.

English side are now in India for a reverse sequence and will be taking part in 5 ODIs starting from October 14 in Hyderabad.
