New Delhi: Travis Head has not been your typical young gun who is bold and brash, wears an earring and a tattoo, and uses the long handle like there is no tomorrow. He is rather an elegant left-hander who is much assured of his ability. Head has not been outstanding on the Indian tour but has shown enough glimpses of his brilliance. He will play a crucial part in the third T20 and is looking to end the India tour on a high.
“It was nice to be in a winning partnership. As batters you want to be there and win games of cricket for Australia and we were able to do that. With the series at stake tomorrow hopefully someone can do that. Hopefully it’s me again or Moises,” Head told reporters on the eve of the third T20.
“It would be fantastic if bowlers also put up a competitive performance to win the match,” he said. Head was disappointed that he got a few good starts but could never convert them into big knocks.
He had scores 39 (Kolkata, 2nd ODI), 29 (Bengaluru, 3rd ODI and 42 (Nagpur, 5th ODI) in the preceding ODI series. “Pretty disappointing personally. I’ve been able to get some starts throughout the tour and not go on I guess and have some pretty poor execution on some of the dismissals,” he said. (With PTI inputs)
