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 Bushrangers and Melbourne Stars for the 2012-13 season and took over the wicketkeeping gloves after Matthew Wade was called into Australia’s Test squad.

Regarded as a skilful player of slow bowling, Handscomb enjoyed a standout Sheffield Shield campaign in 2015-16, hitting 784 runs – the third most in the competition behind Ben Dunk and teammate Travis Dean.

After producing a match-winning century alongside Dean in the 2015-16 Shield final against South Australia, Handscomb hit 61 not out in the second innings and was awarded man-of-the-match honours.

Handscomb was also named Australia A captain in 2016 and has led Victoria in the Matador Cup.
