<a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/players/peter-handscomb/news/" target="_blank">Peter Handscomb</a> is hopeful of channeling his role performed during a title-winning run in this season's domestic one-day trophy in the upcoming ODIs against India next week, after being <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/india-vs-australia-2018-australia-recall-peter-siddle-nathan-lyon-and-usman-khawaja-for-india-odis-787022" target="_blank">recalled </a> to <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/teams/australia/" target="_blank">Australia</a>'s revamped ODI squad. <p></p> <p></p>Handscomb captained Victoria to the JLT One-Day cup title in October, in the process scoring 361 runs in seven innings at an average of 51.57, with four half-centuries. He was named Player of the Match in the final against Queensland for scoring 49 off 45 balls and taking four catches behind the stumps while marshalling his players superbly in a 110-run win. <p></p> <p></p>That approach was what he hopes to replicate during the ODIs versus India. <p></p> <p></p>"It was a really, really good phone call and I'm excited to get out there and hopefully help the boys," Handscomb said in a Facebook chat for <em>cricket.com.au</em>. "A little bit of a surprise but it was nice to know. That's sort of the role I played for Victoria; coming in the middle order, control it, try and tick it over at a run a ball and just get the other batter on strike. Then hopefully leave a few wickets in the shed for some fireworks at the back end." <p></p> <p></p>The 27-year-old has not featured in an ODI since October 2017. His record stands at 149 runs from seven innings with a best of 82. <p></p> <p></p>Handscomb, who played the Adelaide and Perth Tests before he was dropped for the MCG game after scores of 34, 14, 7 and 13 in the series, returned for the ongoing SCG Test. The decision did not sit well with Warne who last month <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/peter-handscombs-technique-not-suitable-for-international-cricket-shane-warne-779023" target="_blank">questioned the batsman s technique</a> - and Handscomb said that blocking out criticism was imperative. <p></p> <p></p>"If I see the positive stuff then that's always a good read but there's a lot of negative stuff out there as well," he said. "I try to stay clear of it if I can. There are papers in our dressing room, guys doing the crosswords, so every now and then you're going to see a headline or something that annoys you but you just want to try and put that to the back of your head and focus on the job at hand." <p></p> <p></p>Australia face India for three ODIs on January 12, 15 and 18.
