Australia A, Victoria, Melbourne Stars, Leicestershire
A match winning 103 off just 64 balls for the Melbourne Stars against the Perth Scorchers in BBL4 was just a glimpse of what Peter Handscomb can do with the bat. Touted as a player of the future by senior Victorian players and administrators, Handscomb’s glovework is also exceptional and has him currently standing in for Matthew Wade when he is on test duties or one day duties.
A talented junior tennis player, Handscomb chose a career on the pitch rather than on the court. The Australian-born son of English parents, he holds a British passport but has lived all of his life in Melbourne and having represented Australia at Under-19 side in 2009 and numerous times for Australia A, Peter has his sights set on higher honors in the green and gold.
