Perth: Australian captain Michael Clarke backed rejuvenated fast bowler Ryan Harris to fire on a bouncy WACA track here and considers the injury-prone bowler equal to Glenn McGrath.
"We're without James (Pattinson) but we get Ryan Harris back, who is as good a fast bowler as I've played with throughout my career. He's had a lot of success. I'm confident that whether we go with three quicks in our attack or four, we can do a really good job," said Clarke.
"Obviously these conditions will help the fast bowlers a lot, especially on day one."
