Peter Handscomb named in the Australian squad to tour Bangladesh in mid-August. I should imagine we'll lose him in early August.

The Cricket Australia press release says the players arrive in Bangladesh on the 18th August and the last test finishes on the 8th September. He'd miss our last T20 group match, any knockout T20s and the championship game against Middlesex. He could miss the game against Surrey too.

Bad news, he is a rock that could be relied upon. So we're back to needing to find 2 OS players again

Given the amount of championship cricket at the end of the season, the club may well seek a replacement for the last six weeks of the season.

A big loss as he's played really well this season & I was personally surprised he didn't represent the Aussies in the Champions Trophy.
And Glenn McGrath dismissed for 2 just 98 runs short of his century.

Still plenty of time left for the Aussies to cancel the tour yet.

Failing that............Shaun Marsh hasn't been selected, could be a replacement for Travis Head and Peter Handscomb!!

Think it was always the working assumption that he would only be with us until then - after all he is part of the settled Test squad. So you would hope that the club has already sounded out potential replacement.
