In the ICC World Test Championship final to be played against India from June 7, Australian batsman Travis Head has indicated playing dangerously. Head wants to bat the way England batsmen have played under the leadership of Ben Stokes and McCullum in the past year. Head have liked the way England have played and, to a large extent, have been batting this way in the longer format for the past two years.
Speaking about the idea of playing against England, Head said: “There’s a fresh new way to play. I’m really liking it. It’s exciting to play like that. This is new. It’s stylish. Stokes and McCullum have shown that this style is true.
While batting fast, the Australian team has won many important matches. In the Ashes series against England, Head scored a century in the first Test. Following this, Australia defeated England 4-0 at the Ashes. As of December 2021, Head is the batsman with the fourth fastest strike rate in Test cricket.
Head says he doesn’t think much about the relationship between ball and run. Head said: “I don’t care much how the situation is. Whether I’m hitting 180 or 80, I try to play the same way. It may be different for other players. Labushen’s way of playing is different.
Let us tell you that the Australian team is preparing for the WTC final against India. In the Border-Gavaskar series played in February-March, Head did not get a chance to play in the first match. However, later as a starter, Head secured a place in the team and proved to be a better batsman for Australia.
