Peter Handscomb Australian cricketer and Middlesex captain tests COVID-19 positive

Another cricketer gets affected by COVID-19. This time it is Peter Handscomb from Australia who was forced to miss the county match against Leicestershire in England after testing positive for COVID-19. Peter Handscomb has been the captain of Middlesex this season, couldn’t play their Championship Group two game on Sunday after being forced into isolation, following a positive test result.

The report from west Australian stated that “Irishman Tim Murtagh stepped up to fill in for Handscomb as skipper as Middlesex ended day one of the clashes with Leicestershire at 3-280”. The 30-year-old is already going through poor form. The stats back that up as he failed to hit a single half-century in the last 13 innings for Middlesex.

Peter Handscomb has fallen out of the radar of national selectors. His last international test match was against India in Sydney in January 2019. As he played the last T20 for Australia against India in February 2019. His last International ODI was against England at Birmingham in July 2019. His last appearance in international cricket in all three formats was in the year 2019. Hope this Covid to be a blessing in disguise from him.


He has played 16 tests, 22 ODI, and 2 T20 for Australia. So, not being an integral part of the Australian team. So, he has scored runs consistently to get the attention of national selectors.
