Australia have called up Peter Handscomb for the upcoming five-match ODI series in India

Australia have called up Peter Handscomb for the upcoming five-match ODI series in India, starting in Chennai on Sunday (September 17), as a cover for opener Aaron Finch.

“Aaron re-aggravated his pre-existing calf injury during warm-up at training yesterday,” said team physiotherapist Alex Kountouris. “He has had a scan in Chennai and although we believe it is not a serious recurrence, he will not be available for the first few one-day matches here in India. He will remain with the squad whilst we assess the injury and establish his return to play timelines.”
