Bio

A talented junior tennis player, opening batsman and sometimes wicketkeeper Peter Handscomb opted for a cricket career and debuted for Victoria in 2011, scoring a patient 71 against Queensland at the Gabba.

Having made his maiden first-class century against South Australia in early 2012, he was handed a full contract with both the Vics and Melbourne Stars for the 2012-13 season and took over the wicketkeeping gloves after Matthew Wade was called into Australia’s Test squad.

He passed fifty four times in his nine Sheffield Shield matches in 2013-14, but was unable to push on to a century.
