The Aussies seem to have found a real gem in Peter Handscombe. 7 tests into his career and he's sitting on a batting average of 63.44. To remain not out under huge pressure after over 200 balls on an Indian 5th day pitch is quite remarkable.
Matt Renshaw also seems to fit in quite nicely alongside Warner at the top of the order. Also with 7 tests now, he's got a not-to-be-sniffed-at batting average of 48.90.
If you don't want your beliefs ridiculed, don't have ridiculous beliefs.

Hanscomb was overdue for a spot in the Australian side. But, you know selectors?...

4th Test India v Australia
Never forget if you dont play for NSW your hopes of playing for Australia are 50% less than someone who does
Why else would Maxwell look to move from Shield Champions 2 seasons in a row
Victoria to them?
Handscombs issues probably have a bit to do with his technique which sees him bowled on average every 3rd innings - as bad as Shane Watson and LBWs - but it works for him.
His tour of the sub -continent with Australia A saw him plunder 90 , 0 & 0.
Until that 72no he was solid without actually posting a score of note.
Shame Kohli is injured for the final test
Another run feast wicket by the looks of it
SIX! Ravichandran Ashwin to David Warner. Off break half volley, outside off stump on the front foot driving, well timed in the air under control over long off for 6 runs.
1/120 (29overs) Smith 67no Warner 48no

Not quite the run feast as Australia were bowled out for 300 at the end of Day 1.
Great knock by Steve Smith, who is clearly the best batsman in the world at the moment.
I thought David Warner was lucky to score what he did. He should have been out first ball.
The Indians did well to pick a wrist spinner for this game. The new guy bowled well and took four crucial wickets.
