The Ashes: Head’s ton helps Australia to escape out

Travis Head hits for a century, helping team Australia to come back in the game.


Travis Head hits his fourth Test hundred and helps Australia to come back in the game with this brilliant knock. A sensational performance of 101 off 113 involved all kinds of shots. Pulling, driving, flicking, cutting, but not stopping. The Head just didn’t stop.

Given a 71-run partnership with Marnus and followed by a run stand of 121 runs with Green, Travis leaves visitors under frustration and of no help. England didn’t seem to realize that game slipped away from their hands. With the pacer in-form Robinson’s injury and Wood struggling to bowl today, the visitors seem helpless.

Playing such fine innings, Travis got out in the very next ball by Chris Woakes. Travis survived a double run on 99 and gets caught on 101, but surely gives team Australia a good comeback in the game.

Mark Wood bowled one of the worst spells in his cricketing career, doubting the fans to this pink ball Test game. Bowling 8 overs, Wood got hit for 62 runs, keeping an economy rate of 7.8 in a Test game.

Green too looks good with his fifty, helping Australia to dominate as a home advantage. With Australia leading the game by more than 200 runs, team England needs to bring back their wicket-taking pacers to come back in the game.

An unexpected knock by Marnus and Travis have taken away the game by England, who seemed to dominate initially. Followed by Green who is playing a stunning knock with Alex Carey coming in to bat. Team Australia has got the balance, which they struggled in the beginning and now won’t leave a chance to let the game slip away from their hands.
