STEVE Harmison enjoyed an overdue success as he attempted to rediscover his rhythm for England in today's tour match against Western Australia.
The Durham seamer was included in a 12-man line-up to feature in the two-day match at the WACA and endured 13 wicket-less overs before claiming his first victim.
He struck in the final session of the day to remove Adam Voges, who was called into Australia's squad for the third Test yesterday.
Left-arm spinner Monty Panesar, another player trying to secure a place in England's third Test line-up, also secured a wicket and a run out, while James Anderson and Sajid Mahmood claimed two wickets apiece as Western Australia reached 276-7 by late in the day.
Harmison's lengthy wait for a wicket increased his frustration after having a catch dropped off his bowling in only his fifth over of the day with the new ball.
Opener Chris Rogers, who played for Northamptonshire last season, had made only 12 when he edged Harmison straight to Ashley Giles at second slip, only for the regulation chance to be put down.
