Handscomb eyes World Cup 2023

The 29-year old played the last of his 22 one-day internationals in the 2019 World Cup semi-final against eventual champion England

Peter Handscomb says he is upset not to be included among Australia's top 26 limited-overs cricketers, but believes his proficiency against spin bowling will secure him a place in the 2023 World Cup in India.

The 29-year old played the last of his 22 one-day internationals in the 2019 World Cup semi-final against eventual champion England.

The Victorian was earlier this month left out of Australia's preliminary 26-man squad for their provisional white-ball tour of England in September.

Handscomb is struggling to break into Australia's formidable middle-order featuring batting mainstay Steven Smith, in-form Marnus Labuschagne and wicketkeeper Alex Carey.

A chat with new selector George Bailey has, however, convinced Handscomb he would be in the reckoning for the 2023 World Cup in India, where spinners usually trouble the batsmen.
