The batsmen at home away from home

Ahead of the Qantas Tour of Bangladesh, we take a look at how the batsmen in Australia's 14-man squad stack up in Tests overseas and, most importantly, on turning tracks in Asia.

Captain courageous posts flawless hundred

Steve Smith



In Australia

Inns: 43 | Runs: 2403 | HS: 192 | Ave: 68.65 | 100s: 10 | 50s: 8

Overseas

Inns: 57 | Runs: 2848 | HS: 215 | Ave: 55.84 | 100s: 10 | 50s: 12

In Asia

Inns: 22 | Runs: 1081 | HS: 178* | Ave 51.47 | 100s: 4 | 50s: 4

The Test skipper has an incredible record away from the comforts of home and has posted three-figure scores in England, South Africa, the West Indies, New Zealand, Sri Lanka and India (as well as a score of 97 in the UAE). He's also scored a ton in four of his past five Tests in Asia and will be key to Australia's success in Bangladesh.



David Warner


In Australia

Inns: 59 | Runs: 3257 | HS: 253 | Ave: 59.21 | 100s: 14 | 50s: 9

Overseas

Inns: 60 | Runs: 2197 | HS: 145 | Ave: 36.61 | 100s: 4 | 50s: 15

In Asia


Inns: 26 | Runs: 790 | HS: 133 | Ave 30.38 | 100s: 1 | 50s: 5

A dominant force in Australia, Warner has been unable to replicate his strong home record into consistent success overseas. The left-hander hit four centuries and two fifties in six innings during an extraordinary streak abroad three years ago (in South Africa and the UAE), but hasn't registered a three-figure score overseas in 33 innings since.

Matthew Renshaw


In Australia

Inns: 6 | Runs: 315 | HS: 184 | Ave: 63.00 | 100s: 1 | 50s: 1


Overseas

Inns: 8 | Runs: 232 | HS: 68 | Ave: 29.00 | 100s: 0 | 50s: 2


In Asia


Inns: 8 | Runs: 232 | HS: 68 | Ave 29.00 | 100s: 0 | 50s: 0

Renshaw showed some positive signs in India earlier this year, scoring two gritty half-centuries in what was his first taste of first-class cricket overseas. He'll be chasing more consistency in Bangladesh ahead of what will be his maiden Ashes campaign this summer.

Peter Handscomb

In Australia

Inns: 7 | Runs: 399 | HS: 110 | Ave: 99.75 | 100s: 2 | 50s: 2

Overseas

Inns: 8 | Runs: 198 | HS: 72* | Ave: 28.28 | 100s: 0 | 50s: 1


In Asia


Inns: 8 | Runs: 198 | HS: 72* | Ave: 28.28 | 100s: 0 | 50s: 1

The Victorian managed just one half-century on a tough Test tour of India earlier this year, but his first-class record suggests he's capable of making an impact in foreign conditions as well as at home. The right-hander scored 91 on Australia A's tour of India in 2015 (along with two ducks) and while he struggled for consistency in his two stints in English county cricket (for Gloucestershire in 2015 and Yorkshire this year) he's managed a total of one century and six fifties in the County Championship.

Glenn Maxwell

Overseas


Inns: 10 | Runs: 239 | HS: 104 | Ave: 23.90 | 100s: 1 | 50s: 0


In Asia


Inns: 10 | Runs: 239 | HS: 104 | Ave: 23.90 | 100s: 1 | 50s: 0

Maxwell's sporadic opportunities in Test cricket to date have all come in Asia and he's expected to add to that in Bangladesh later this month. Away from Test cricket, the right-hander has produced the occasional flash of brilliance amid some low scores away from home against the red ball, including an unbeaten 155 for Australia A in South Africa in 2013 and 140 for Yorkshire two years later.

Usman Khawaja


In Australia

Inns: 22 | Runs: 1211 | HS: 174 | Ave: 63.73 | 100s: 4 | 50s: 6

Overseas

Inns: 18 | Runs: 515 | HS: 140 | Ave: 30.29 | 100s: 1 | 50s: 2


In Asia


Inns: 7 | Runs: 115 | HS: 26 | Ave 19.16 | 100s: 0 | 50s: 0

One of the country's top performers in Australia, Khawaja's numbers are significantly lower away from home and ultimately led to him losing his spot in the XI for the Test tour of India earlier this year. Outside the Test arena, the left-hander has managed just one fifty across 14 innings on Australia A's tours of India, Zimbabwe and the UK between 2011 and 2015 while stints in English county cricket for Derbyshire in 2012 (537 runs at 48) and Lancashire in 2014 (413 runs at 31) delivered mixed results.

Hilton Cartwright

In Australia


Inns: 33 | Runs: 1458 | HS: 170* | Ave: 52.07 | 100s: 4 | 50s: 7

Not only will the Qantas Tour of Bangladesh be Cartwright's first Test series away from home, if he plays it will be his first taste of first-class cricket outside of Australia. The right-hander has built an imposing record at home and will be hoping to replicate that if he's given a chance in Bangladesh.

Matthew Wade


In Australia


Inns: 15 | Runs: 362 | HS: 102* | Ave: 32.90 | 100s: 1 | 50s: 2


Overseas


Inns: 20 | Runs: 507 | HS: 106 | Ave: 29.82 | 100s: 1 | 50s: 2


In Asia


Inns: 14 | Runs: 309 | HS: 62 | Ave 25.75 | 100s: 0 | 50s: 2


Having burst onto the international scene with a Test century on the dry, slow wickets of the Caribbean in 2012, Wade has been unable to reach those heights at either Test or Australia A level away from home in the years since. He consistently made starts without posting a big score on the recent tour of India, scoring 20 or more in five of his eight innings in the Tests and posting 64 in the warm-up match to average 38 from 10 first-class innings on tour.
