Peter Handscomb is hoping to score a trip to India
Despite knowing it will be challenging to break into the “impressive” Australian Test squad, Peter Handscomb said he is still hoping to secure a spot for the India tour with his “weight of numbers.”
Although he is aware it will be challenging to break into the “impressive” Australian Test squad, in-form batsman Peter Handscomb said he is still hoping to secure a spot for the India tour with his “weight of numbers.”The 31-year-old scored 562 runs at a strike rate of 93.66 in this summer’s Sheffield Shield, nearly four years after his last red-ball cricket match. He scored two fifties last month against the West Indies for the Prime Minister’s XI. When he captains a Cricket Australia XI against South Africa, beginning in Brisbane on Friday, Handscomb will try to advance his cause.
“I’m thereabouts,” Handscomb was quoted as saying by “The West Australian.” “So the conversations (with Test selectors) are promising.”But you also need to take a look at the Test team, where players like the ones standing in front of me and some batters who are performing admirably. “I can score as many runs as I want, but they’re playing pretty good cricket right now, so there still needs to be a spot at the next level,” the player said.
Even though Travis Head will challenge Handscomb for a spot in the team for the India tour, the spinner is well known for his skill.
