SYDENY: middle-order batsman Peter Handscomb will make his restricted overs debut for Australia against Pakistan in the 1/3 one-day global in Perth on Thursday.
Handscomb replaces the injured Mitchell Marsh after a extremely successful introduction to check cricket by which the 25-yr-previous scored two centuries and two fifties in his first four appearances in the contemporary sequence in opposition to South Africa and Pakistan.
“He´s achieved actually well, he´s been outstanding. So excellent reward for a just right summer season,” Australian show Darren Lehmann told journalists Wednesday.
“clearly we would like 4 quality batters going on the high so he´ll get his probability there.
“He played a one-day type innings for us in the Sydney test, so he´s bought all of the shots and he´s slightly progressive,” Lehmann stated.
quick bowler Billy Stanlake comes in for Mitchell Starc, who is being rested.
Chris Lynn, who missed Sunday´s loss as a result of a neck injury, will be out for the rest of the five-fit collection which is tied at 1-1, Lehman stated.
