Profile

A middle-order batsman equally comfortable against spin as pace, Peter Handscomb earned his first Test call-up in 2016-17 after a prolific period for Victoria. His inclusion for the Adelaide Test against South Africa followed a career-best 215 in the Sheffield Shield, and the previous summer he had been the competition's third-leading run scorer. Handscomb had been on the radar of Australia's national selectors for some time, having captained Australia A and been part of Australia's ODI squad in England in 2015 without playing a match. The owner of a British passport as the Australian-born son of English parents, Handscomb was a talented junior tennis player but chose a career on the pitch rather than on the court. A sometime wicketkeeper, particularly early in his career, Handscomb settled in the No.4 position with Victoria as a specialist batsman. He has also spent time in county cricket, playing with Gloucestershire in 2015 as an overseas player.
