Adelaide darling Head feasts on Windies again, scores Ton and crosses 3,000 Test runs

This latest display of grit and flair proves that Travis Head is not just a talented batter, but a player who thrives in big moments.

Hometown hero Travis Head has returned to his Adelaide stomping grounds with a feast of runs, scoring a scintillating century against the West Indies in the first Test. This wasn’t just any ton, it was a landmark moment – his seventh in Tests and the one that propelled him past the coveted 3,000-run mark!

Coming in at a shaky 52/3, Travis Head steadied the Australian innings, first stitching a crucial partnership with Usman Khawaja (45), then carrying the lower order on his shoulders. Once past his fifty, the left-hander unleashed his full attacking spirit, delighting the Adelaide crowd with his elegant drives and crisp boundaries.

The century wasn’t just a personal milestone, it was a masterclass in batting under pressure. With the Aussies facing a tricky situation early on, Travis Head’s calm and composed innings laid the foundation for a strong comeback. Travis Head 15th run brought up the magical 3,000 runs figure, marking his meteoric rise to becoming one of Australia’s batting pillars.

But Head’s love affair with Adelaide and the West Indies goes beyond numbers. His highest Test score of 175 also came against the West Windies at this very ground last year. In fact, against this particular opponent, he boasts a staggering average of over 190.

This latest display of grit and flair proves that Travis Head is not just a talented batter, but a player who thrives in big moments. With the Ashes and Border Gavaskar series looming, the Adelaide hero’s bat seems poised to write many more chapters in the Australian cricketing saga.

So, raise a glass to Travis Head, the man who loves Adelaide, loves the West Indies, and most importantly, loves scoring runs for his country. This ton might just be the first delicious slice of a feast to come.
