England coach Peter Moores expressed his confidence that fast bowler Steve Harmison will play a part in their tour in Sri Lanka this month.

Harmison, 29, is currently playing South African domestic cricket in his quest to regain fitness after a recent back injury.

Moores has been encouraged, however, by Harmison's debut for the Johannesburg-based Highveld Lions - he took nine wickets against Cape Cobras - and is hoping for more of the same from the Durham seamer in his second SuperSport match this week.

"I've spoken to Steve this morning, and we hope he will be joining us for a good tour," Moores told BBC Radio 5 Live.

"I don't think it is a make-or-break tour at all. He has a lot of cricket left in him."
