James Harris could set a Glamorgan bowling record when they face Northamptonshire in the County Championship starting on Wednesday at Swansea's St Helen's ground.

At 21, Harris is poised to become the youngest Glamorgan player to reach 200 top-class wickets.

Current record holder Darren Thomas reached the mark aged 23.

Harris, recently called up by England Lions, has been named in a 13-strong squad for the Division Two game.

The Pontarddulais-bred bowler has taken 185 wickets for Glamorgan and 14 for English representative teams.

He has been included in the England Lions squad for the four-day match against Sri Lanka A in Scarborough, which starts on 2 August.

Glamorgan are lying seventh in the table that Northamptonshire lead.

In the corresponding 2010 game Robert Croft claimed his 1,000th first-class wicket and he returns along with Stewart Walters and Alex Jones.

Glamorgan squad: AN Petersen (capt), GP Rees, WD Bragg, SJ Walters, MJ Powell, J Allenby, MA Wallace (wicket-keeper), GG Wagg, JAR Harris, RDB Croft, DA Cosker, WT Owen, AJ Jones.
