Summary

  • TEST batsman Peter Handscomb has been sending videos of tweaks to his batting technique to coach Justin Langer confident he has found the method to continue his international career.
  • Handscomb, who batted at No.4 in place of the suspended Steve Smith in the final Test in South Africa in March, conceded it was “open slather” for spots in the team with David Warner and Cameron Bancroft also banned.
  • Handscomb said international bowlers had worked him out after he burst on to the scene with two centuries in his first three Tests, and a lean run of scores was the result.
  • The 27-year-old has tapped in to Langer and flown to Brisbane to work with former Test opener Chris Rogers, now a Cricket Australia batting coach, to drill down on what he needs to do to secure his spot.
  • Declaring everyone had “moved on” from the scandal, Handscomb said his focus was on preparing for the A tour, knowing runs are crucial to be in Langer’s Test plans.
