Who is Garfield Harrison?

Garfield David Harrison is one of four brothers to have played cricket for Ireland. Garfield was by far the most successful of the four, playing 118 times for Ireland between 1983 and 1997, including twelve first-class matches against Scotland and 20 List A matches.

He is one of only six players to have played more than 100 times for Ireland, behind only Kyle McCallan and Alan Lewis. He started his career as an opening bowler, but switched to off spin, becoming so good at this style of bowling that he took 9/113 against Scotland in 1990, the best bowling figures in first-class cricket in the UK that year, the fourth best bowling figures in all cricket for Ireland and the second best for Ireland in first-class cricket.
