Peter Handscomb is racing against the clock to embark on his first Australian Test tour in four years after scans confirmed a hip injury.

Handscomb suffered the injury while playing club cricket in Victoria on Tuesday night when he was hit while trying to play a pull shot.

He continued to bat, but collapsed in pain three balls later after hitting another pull shot for a six. Scans have since confirmed soft-tissue damage in his right hip.

Officials are confident that Handscomb will be fit to accompany the Australian team for the Qantas tour of India later this month.

Starc will miss the first Test in Nagpur on February 9 and will then fly to India, while Green is expected to play in the first match of the series.

Handscomb’s best chance of a Test return is if he is fit for the first match and Green doesn’t recover in time.

Working in Handscomb’s favor is the fact that he is a right-handed batsman, and can break the line of left-handed batsmen in the middle order.
