After a successful 2015-16 cricket season, Peter Handscomb only managed two games with the Melbourne Stars in BBL|06 due to duties with the national team.
Coming off knocks of 110 and 40* in a Test match against Pakistan, Handscomb returned to the Stars to face the Strikers and the Scorchers. He was then called up to the international one-day squad.
Handscomb has made a total of 317 runs in his 22 matches with the Stars. He managed a century in BBL|04 against the Scorchers, with his knock of 103* the third best score for the Stars since the introduction of the Big Bash competition.
Not dismissed below 50 in any of his first seven innings of Test cricket, Handscomb is one of the country’s most promising batsman.
