Re: Peter Handscomb

January 3 2017, 12:00 AM 

Regarding Williamson's availability, the only cricket New Zealand are playing this summer is the Champions Trophy and the Kiwis are next back in action until late November. In recent years, New Zealand have toured the West Indies and South Africa (twice) during their traditional off-season.

Bearing in mind the New Zealand domestic season does not traditionally begin until late October, Williamson might fancy getting some County Cricket in after a period of rest. No better opportunity to come in later August as a direct replacement for Handscombe and Williamson has publically stated he enjoys coming back to Yorkshire whenever possible.

Also in 2018, New Zealand play no cricket from April to later October whilst most test nations are on international duty at some point after the IPL.

It would be good to see Kane, rested and in a better frame of mind than he was in 2016. I'm watching him currently batting in the T20 at Napier against Bangladesh - class act.

Meanwhile, Handscomb is 40 not out overnight in the Sydney Test.

Matt Renshaw the Aussie from Middlesbrough not doing too bad either, 167 not out at stumps.

Clearly a good player - does this mean we'll get to see less of him....?

We do seem very good at locating high quality but relatively unknown overseas players.

I think we're fine if he remains in the test side only. If he breaks into the limited overs team we might be b******d!

Maybe we do a swap with Renshaw if he ends up in their ODI set-up!

Peter Handscomb kept wicket in the test for over 50 overs when Wade fell ill.

Glad we signed him when we did as his price might just have increased in the last month!

So he accepts he's more suited to red ball Cricket. Hopefully the club realise this and snap up a couple more overseas for T20.

I don't see the club being prepared to pay for an overseas player not to play for a month just because he is better suited to the long form. He might not have the best stats but he has played in the IPL and played a full Big Bash season last time as I recall.

Yes, you're right he played the full season. A season with that return for us would be a failure in my opinion.

Hope to get a look at Handscomb, he might even be keeping, in the BBL on Saturday, Channel 5 televised match about 10 O'clock Saturday morning.

Tim's playing for the opposition.

Watched this today. Not fussed about his innings but i don't think Hodd's place in the championship is under threat behind the stumps.

Graham Hardcastle on Twitter today:

Peter Handscomb added to Australia ODI squad v Pakistan. Hope that doesn't spell danger for Yorkshire in months to come

Hmm. Is it too late to go for Matt Renshaw instead?

No replacement has materialised for the clubs former captain who was unable to drop himself last season due to lack of batting options. Signing David Miller as a Kolpak if available would be a very sensible and outward looking decision.

I'm all for Miller as either a kolpak or overseas for our second player in the t20 comp but his record in first class cricket is ordinary. An average of 35.
