Handscomb receives huge honour
Date of Event : Mon Aug 21, 2017 1:56PM
ST KILDA cricket club would like to congratulate Peter Handsomb on being elevated to the Victorian captaincy for the 2017/18 season.
Handscomb will skipper the Bushrangers when he is not on Australian duty.
“It’s an absolute honour and privilege to be named captain of Victoria, and something I take a lot of pride in,” Handscomb said.
“To be able to lead such a strong and successful team that has won three Sheffield Shield titles in a row is an amazing opportunity.
“Following in the footsteps of some Victorian greats like Bill Lawry and more recently Cameron White and Matthew Wade who have led Victoria to so much success, is exciting.
St Kilda president Paul Ryan commended the 26-year-old on his appointment.
"Our club is tremendously proud of Pete and congratulate him on such a deserved elevation to captain of Victoria," Ryan said.
"To be captain of our State at such a young age is a credit to his maturity, talent and leadership and we wish him the best of luck this season in Sheffield Shield cricket, Big Bash cricket and wearing the baggygreen for Australia in The Ashes."
Handscomb is currently preparing for a Test series against Bangladesh, beginning on 27 August.
