Harmison May Delay Hernia Operation
He is expected to play for his Durham in the Friends Provident Trophy semi-final against Essex on Wednesday.
Andrew Walpole, England spokesman said on Tuesday:
"Steve Harmison has a non-serious hernia and he will require surgery at some stage.
"The injury is not currently affecting his bowling at this time."
Harmison himself is even considering delaying the operation until after the summer.
"I felt something go in my back during the warm-up and it just got stiffer and stiffer but there was no way I was missing the test on my home ground," he said in an interview with Sky Sports.
"Hopefully I will play for as long as I can. If I can get through until the end of the summer, that would be great. Ideally I don't want to miss any test matches. But I want to be able to bowl at 90 miles an hour and not 80 miles an hour.
"That's something I have got to look at in the next three or four weeks. If I am still bowling at 80 miles an hour in the next week then we might have to have a look at it."
