Harris to quit Titans
Centurion - Proteas left-arm spinner Paul Harris is to leave the Titans, it was announced on Wednesday.
Andy O'Connor, vice-chairperson and head of the playing affairs at the Titans, confirmed Harris would no longer be available to the team.
"Paul wants to participate in all formats of franchise cricket, including the MTN40 and Standard Bank Pro20 competitions and while we understand Paul's views, given the personnel available to the team in the spin-bowling department, we are unfortunately unable to guarantee him a spot in our team in all versions of the game," he said.
"Although we are very sad to see Paul leave, we wish him all the very best for the future.
"When Paul joined us a few seasons ago, he was participating in the Western Province 'B' team and we are immensely proud to have played a part in his rise to selection at Test level for the Proteas, where he has performed most admirably.
"He has contributed significantly to the cause of the Titans, both on and off the field, and we thank him for his efforts," concluded O'Connor.
Harris thanked the Titans for all that they had done for him. "I have thoroughly enjoyed my time with the Titans, but feel I should be competing in all available formats of the game," said Harris.
It is not immediate clear where Harris will continue his career.
