TWO months is a long time in cricket and from terrorising Josh Mclean at Salter Oval, to ensuring Queensland won the Ryobi Cup at the MCG, Ryan Harris continues his push for an Ashes ticket with a return to the Sheffield Shield arena on Thursday.

The recovery from shoulder surgery has been longer than expected and Tasmania can expect a fired-up Harris to be steaming in at the Gabba.

He comes into the Bulls side for their last home game and second-last regular season fixture.

The Bulls are in third spot on 22 points, two points behind South Australia (24) and six behind leaders Victoria (28) which defeated Queensland 10 days ago.

All matches of the second last round of the Shield competition will have a bearing on final spots, with WA (20 pts), Tasmania (18 pts) and NSW (17 pts) close behind.

Harris said while it was nice that he was being mentioned in media circles as a potential Australian player again, he still had a long way to go.

"Playing for Australia is still a goal, but I haven't played a Sheffield Shield game yet this season,'' Harris said.

"At the moment I just want to win another Shield for Queensland, go and do my bit in the IPL, play some regular cricket and get stronger and stronger."
