Brain fade for Peter Handscomb

By Aditya Pratap Arya -

If anyone asks you about the most horrible way to get out, one would say Hit Wicket is a unfortunate manner go to back to pavilion. Maybe, Peter Handscomb is also feeling the same, as he hit his bails with his bat.

On second day of Sydney test, he got out hit wicket by Wahab Riaz after scoring his second ton in 4 tests. On the fifth ball of 132nd over, he was playing on 110 and tried to squeeze a wide Yorker, get deep inside his crease and his bat clipped the leg pole. As soon as he hit the wicket, bail took off in a second and Sarfaraz made the appeal.

This was the highest score for the 25-year old Victorian. Moreover, he became only the second Aussie after Herbie Collins to register four 50+ scores in first four tests. Currently, he is averaging 89.75 in Test circuit.
