A true international cricketer, Joe Harris was born in Madras India, briefly played first-class cricket in Barbados, but will reach the pinnacle of hs cricketing career by captaining Canada to the World Cup in South Africa in 2003. He is an exciting right-hand, hard-hitting bat,, and his skills always seemed to come to the fore when his country most need them. He was picked for Barbados in the late 1980s largely for his off-spin bowling, but he failed to make an impression in six first-class matches, and later moved to Canada. He became a dominant player in the Toronto leagues, and although he did not play in the 1997 ICC Trophy, soon became an important part of the national team. Now mostly a middle order batsman, his bowling is still useful in one-day games, often taking crucial wickets. After taking over the captaincy, he has presided over one of the most successful Canadian teams in recent history, welding together talented players from a variety of backgrounds into a match-winning unit. He was man of the series when Canada won the inaugural Americas Cup in 2000, and then his captaincy was a vital component of Canada's successful ICC Trophy campaign in 2001. He led Canada to the World Cup in 2003, and to a famous victory over Bangladesh in their opening match. (Dave Liverman, 2002-3)
