In the second of a series of posts profiling various players across the club, for those unsure who to select in their fantasy team, we focus on young wicket keeper Ben Harris.
Name: Ben Harris
Nickname(s): Benny, Mini-Harris
Role: Wicket keeper / Batsman
2017 stats: 144 runs @ 10.3, 12 catches, 4 stumpings, 1 run out
Fantasy value: £5m
Is he worth it? If you believe our club chairman who still hasn’t forgiven him for dropping at catch 3 years ago…no. But when you look at the way he performed behind the stumps in 2017 and how he continues to work on his batting, you certainly wouldn’t bet against him having a very good 2018.
GCSEs might get in the way on the odd occasion early in the season, but at £5m the middle of the Harris-trio certainly looks to be good value for money.
