Sydney - Ahead of their third ODI against Pakistan, Australian
newcomer Peter Handscomb will have his chance to showcase his limited-overs
talents on the international stage.
Coming in as a replacement for Mitchell Marsh, the
25-year-old will be hoping to replicate his Test form after scoring important
runs against South Africa and Pakistan over the last couple months.
Baggie Greens coach Darren Lehmann praised Handscomb and has
no doubt that he will adapt to the 50 overs format swiftly.
"He's done really well, he's been outstanding. So good
reward for a good summer," he said.
"Obviously we want four quality batters going at the
top so he'll get his chance there.
"He played a one-day style innings for us in the Sydney
test, so he's got all the shots and he's quite innovative.”
Fast bowler Billy Stanlake is the other inclusion as he
steps in for Mitchell Starc, who Lehmann decided to rest.
Australia: Steve Smith (captain), David Warner, Usman
Khawaja, Peter Handscomb, Travis Head, Glenn Maxwell, Matthew Wade, James
