The tournament's official website quoted Langer as saying, "I tell you the truth, Peter Handscomb will definitely play in the match, 100 %. He deserves it and he was also unhappy with not joining the team for the tournament. He was also unlucky to take us to the team after reaching out to us." further says Langer, "He is in good form and he played well for Australia-A.
