Profile

An aggressive offspinner seldom finds a place in South African cricket but Simon Harmer was determined to be different. He carved a niche for himself at the Warriors franchise after he moved to the Eastern Cape from his home on the Highveld, where he was schooled at Pretoria Boys' High School, the alma mater of Eddie Barlow.
