Named the Man of the Match in a Test he did not think he would play in, Ryan Harris is now intent on keeping his spot for as long as his problematic body will allow.
Harris took two wickets in the first innings and three in the second, none more important than the swift dismissal of Shivnarine Chanderpaul.
These spells book ended Harris' highest score in Tests, a committed 68 not out that allowed Michael Clarke the luxury of making a timely declaration on the fourth afternoon to set-up Australia's eventual victory.
Though he is now a known and respected quantity as a Test match bowler, Harris had never previously shown an international opponent just how well he could bat before his alliances with Ben Hilfenhaus and Nathan Lyon.
Clarke and the rest of the team are unabashed in their fondness for Harris, his honesty and unrelenting effort.
Having now contributed to numerous Test match wins for Australia, Harris wants to keep doing so for as long as he possibly can.
