WHO’LL BE THE NEXT AUSSIE BATSMAN TO STAND UP?

Victorian batsman Peter Handscomb is our best batting prospect according to a market from online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au on which uncapped player will be the next to score a Test Match century.

It’s a long list of candidates, with South Australian Travis Head next in line at $4.00 ahead of WA opener Cameron Bancroft at $5.50.

NSW’s prospects Nic Maddinson ($6.50) and Kurtis Patterson ($7.00) may well get the chance to step up, while the coach’s son Jake Lehmann is $26 to be the next rookie to hit a Test ton.

As good as Steve Waugh’s son Austin is, let’s hope the 17 year old isn’t the “next” century maker in the Baggy Green at $101 although he does look destined to achieve that feat at some stage.

“You’d think a few of these guys will get the chance to shine on the big stage very soon but we rate Pater Handscomb as the most likely to make the step up and do what the current top six can’t – score a Test Match century,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
