Harmison Makes Himself Available For Winter Tours
Harmison, 29, played a pivotal role in England's fourth Test win over South Africa at The Brit Oval before coming out of One Day International retirement to help England into a 2-0 series lead.
"I've enjoyed coming back so I'm now back in the selectors' hands," he said, speaking to BBC radio.
"It's up to them now what squad they pick because I'm not selected for India. If I get selected to go to India, then I'll be on the plane. I'm available. I'm coming back to play cricket," he added.
"I came back and played at Headingley and the way things are looking, I'm available for the winter," Harmison, who has said in the past that he did not want to be away from his young family, told Sky Sports News.
"I've got four young children, and I miss them dearly when I go away from home, but once I have said I was available, I'm available. It's a lot more stable now than when I retired.
"They (the family) are a massive part of my life and they always come first and I've been criticised for that but that will never change," he added.
"But they are fully 100 percent behind me...they said go for it and give it your best shot."
England travel to Antigua in October for the Stanford Super Series before touring India in December and the West Indies in early 2009.
