Left-hand batsman Travis Head is one of the brightest batting talents in Australia. Twice named Player of the Championship while representing South Australia at the U-19 National Championships, Head is regarded as one of the most promising young batsman in Australia. He was a stand-out for the National Performance Squad during their 2014 one-day series against Australia A, South Africa A and India A, boasting an average of 43 including two half centuries and his first ever List A hundred. The 21-year old is a clean hitter of the ball and has an aggressive instinct no matter what form of the game he is playing.

A talented left-hand batsman earmarked for big things at a young age, Travis Head earned his first call-up to Australia’s squad at the age of 22 for a series of Twenty20s against India in early 2016. A classy left-hand batsman, Head made his Sheffield Shield debut at the age of 18 in the 2011-12 season. Over the next few summers he established his place in the South Australia batting line-up and was a consistent contributor, though a maiden century proved elusive despite his regular scores in the nineties. In February 2015, Head was named captain of the Redbacks and at 21 became the state’s youngest captain of all time. He had been viewed as a future leader ever since he captained South Australia to the Under-19 National Championship title in 2012-13 and was named Player of the Championship. As captain of South Australia he showed maturity beyond his years, and in 2015-16 steered them to their first Sheffield Shield final in 20 years, along the way scoring 721 runs himself at an average of 36.05.
