Head’s big knock drives Redbacks win

South Australian cricketer Travis Head yesterday smashed 230 out of just 127 balls in an extraordinary inning featuring 28 4 and 8 6 against Queensland before national selection. I’m back firmly in.

Left-handed heroes have given Redbacks their first victory in all its forms since February last year.

Redbacks posted 8-389 from 48 overs before the Bulls were bowled to 312 with 40.3 overs in a rain-affected match.

The head raced from just 65 balls to 100. This is the fastest ton in history for SA in a one-day tournament.

Opener Jake Weatherd made 97 out of 103 balls, but his innings were a sideshow of the main event as the head smashed the Queensland bowler.

In response, Queensland’s opening round Sam Heazlett blasted 93 from 59 balls and hit 11 4 and 3-6, but Usman Kawaja (12) and Marnus Rabshagne (6) failed.

Head recorded the second highest personal score of the day in the country, after Darcy Short’s 257 against Queensland in 2018.

SA Skipper surpassed 229 against Tasmania’s Bendunk Bulls in 2015, reaching Doubleton’s second day in the country. Recorded 202 against WA in 2015.

Shorts and dunks are the only other batters in the country who have spent a day and two centuries a day.

The head reached doubleton from just 114 balls. This is the fastest milestone in domestic cup history.

The 27-year-old lost favor with the Australian test selector before the coronavirus pandemic, but ahead of the December ash series, coupled with centuries-old knocks at this season’s Sheffield Shield competition. There is no doubt that it will attract attention.
