Top 10 Debutants of 2016


9. Peter Handscomb (Australia)

Top 10 Debutants of 2016Peter Stephen Patrick Handscomb got the national call-up, this year when Australia conceded an inaccessible lead to South Africa in the 3-match Test series Down Under. The Victoria batsman made his debut in Day-Night Test at Adelaide and made a good start to his career with a well compiled half-century. At present, Peter is one of the few players from Australia, who is as good against spin as pace bowling.

He uses his feet to a good affect against spinners and that was evident against Proteas and Pakistan as well. The right-hand batsman notched up his maiden century in only his 3rd innings at Brisbane. The 25-year-old possesses an unorthodox technique but plays with some efficiency and has shown the skills and temperament required to succeed at international-level.

In 3 Tests, he has accumulated 249 runs at an average of 83.
