Neither- they have a bloke called Josh Inglis keeping. Both of them, despite keeping for their respective BBL teams, fall firmly into the part time category- much moreso then Handscomb. Combined with their lack of experience at the level and it’s tough to see them getting the nod
Perhaps this isn’t as it came across in the article, but my hesitance has nothing to do with Handscombs keeping itself. Rather his ability to do so in an international tournament of this significance. International is places significantly greater demands on players, and this will only be magnified at the World Cup. Given his lack of experience in the arena, it would be a risk to give him the job. Pressure does strange things to players. As an optimist you’d like to think he could perform to his usual level, but it is certainly a question mark for me.
Thanks for the feedback, a lot of what you write makes good sense. I neglected to write about strike rate and that is my mistake.
The only question I would have with regard to your analysis there is the use of Wades career SR and average. I think he is much improved with the bat since his last stint in the side, where it was clear his batting was not up to scratch. I think if he was selected, his output in both these measures would be reflective of his improvement.
