1 He has a lot of time on his hands. (Can we use 'in his hands'?)
2 He has a competitior on his hands. (What does the sentence mean? And can we use 'in his hands'?)
3 They have still got an economic crisis on their hands. (Can we use 'in their hands'?)

Click here to see examples of how 'in his hands' can be used.

Change 'his' to 'my', 'your', 'their' etc for lots more examples.
