Peter Handscomb has unobtrusively reinforced his case for a spot in Australia’s center request after a prevailing showcase in the Sheffield Shield.
Everyone’s eyes on Tuesday were stuck to partner Aaron Finch and how he would perform against Queensland at the Gabba after he was questionably denied an opening spot.
That issue wasn’t put to bed after Finch batted at No.3 yet basically played out an opening move after he was conveyed to the wrinkle just five balls into the Victorian innings.
He made 50 keeps running off 87 balls, while steadying the ship with Handscomb after two early wickets.
They agreed with their position from 2-6 to 3-122, preceding Handscomb continued with the activity. He made it to 81 off 126 balls previously he was rejected by Mark Steketee.
That hands the preferred standpoint to Handscomb over South Australia’s Travis Head, his identity anticipated that would go head to head with for a spot at Australia’s No.5.
Head is yet to bat against Tasmania in the wake of winning the hurl and choosing to field.
Handscomb has now made 308 keeps running at 44.00 in this current season’s Sheffield Shield, including one century and one fifty. Preceding batting against Tasmania, Head had 109 keeps running at 36.33.
The principal Test against India begins on Dec 6 at Adelaide Oval, which is Head’s home ground.
