Peter Handscomb to make World Cup debut against England

Peter Handscomb to make World Cup debut against England

Australia’s World Cup campaign suffered a major blow as top-order batsman Usman Khawaja was ruled out of the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament with a hamstring injury. To cover his absence, Australia called the wicket-keeper batsman Peter Handscomb who is now set to make his World Cup debut.

The 28-year old will be under tremendous pressure as making his debut in the semi-final of a mega-event and that too against England isn’t something easy to digest. While a strong outing could make him a hero, a failure would do the exactly opposite.

On the eve of the semi-final clash against England, head coach Justin Langer confirmed that Handscomb will be replacing Usman in Australia’s playing eleven. The Victoria born might have a limited experience at the International level, but he has shown his prowess as he now sits ready to give his best against arch-rivals England in Birmingham on July 11. With a World Cup final berth on the line, the contest promises to be a spicy affair full of thrilling moments.
