#4 Peter Handscomb

Peter Handscombe holds on to a chance at short-leg

The 26-year-old middle-order batsman has quietly become one of the mainstays of the Australian batting line-up over the past year or so.

However, Peter Handscomb has also added a different edge to the team's close-in fielding with his presence at short-leg and has quickly become one of the world's best fielders at the position.

His reflexes and quick reaction time make him the fielder that he has become at short-leg. In addition to that, he can concentrate for long, anticipate a batsman's moves and does not duck early if he notices that the batsman is winding up for an attacking shot on the leg side.

He has picked up some absolute blinders in his short career and so far and it is not a stretch to state that Peter Handscomb is already great in the pantheon of superb Australian short-leg fielders.
