‘Needs To Figure Out How To play Spinning Ball,’ says a former Australian captain about Travis Head

Travis Head has only scored 91 runs in his most recent Test appearances in Pakistan and Sri Lanka, with the highest overall score of 26 and a dismal average of 15.17.

Allan Border, a former Australian Test great, has asked middle-order batsman Travis Head to draw inspiration from the great opener Matthew Hayden and create a gameplan for subcontinent conditions for his team’s upcoming trip of India.

This follows some awful performances by the batter in the Test series vs Pakistan and Sri Lanka. His struggles on the subcontinent stand in stark contrast to his outstanding Ashes performance from last summer, when he hit 357 runs and won “Player of the Series.”

Given that they have only won one series since 2004, the Australians are eager to stop their Test losing streak in India. In light of this, Border believes that Head’s plan should be altered in order to succeed under spinning circumstances. With 1,799 runs at such an average of 54.51 and six centuries spanning India, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, the former captain has a stellar record in Asia.

“He must sit down and devise a method that works better than it does at the moment, without a doubt. I have briefly discussed batting on turning wickets with him, “Border was cited by as saying.
