Durham have announced the signing of Australia international Peter Handscomb for the remainder of the English domestic season.

The wicketkeeper-batsman - who has represented his country in all three formats - missed out on selection for the Ashes squad but will now remain in England.

Handscomb fills the overseas spot at Durham vacated by compatriot Cameron Bancroft, who was picked in Australia's 17-man party for the five-Test series.

"We are delighted to welcome Peter to Durham for the rest of the season," Marcus North, director of cricket at Durham, said.

"Peter is a well-known player across all formats of the game, so it is a great to be welcoming him to Chester-le-Street.

"He has proven he can score runs having excelled for Victoria in their domestic competition, so we are pleased to have him joining us at Durham."
