According to the Sydney Morning Herald, Harris has only once appeared in three consecutive Tests until the current Ashes series, where he is the leading pace bowler on either side with 20 wickets at an average of 19.25 from only three matches.
However, the report added, the bowler is now set to feature in a fourth straight game in the fifth Test of the Ashes, starting at The Oval on Wednesday, continuing his lead role in the Australian attack, with his role being confirmed by a clean chit on his fitness and a career-best innings haul of 7-117 in the fourth Test at Durham.
According to captain Michael Clarke, had Harris been fully fit for his full career, he might have 50 Tests under his belt, although he added that the fact that he has been injured does not take away from the fact that Harris is a senior player and leader in their group.
Peter Siddle, whose reputation as a workhorse is more established, is also poised to go the distance, lining up alongside Harris to complete a fifth appearance in the series despite looking increasingly tired at Durham, the report added.
