By India Today Web Desk: Australia batter Travis Head has opened up about his omission from Australia’s crew for his or her first Test match in opposition to India in Nagpur, saying it was one thing that he didn’t count on. Australia is about to tackle India within the third Test of the four-match Border-Gavaskar collection in Indore.
Speaking forward of the Indore Test, Head mentioned he didn’t count on to be dropped for the primary match of the collection.
“It was something that I didn’t expect coming here. The conversations were robust. Everyone has different opinions. I respect the coaching staff and selectors and I have a really strong relationship with them. I think that’s what made the conversations the way they went, because there’s respect that goes both ways and we were able to voice our opinions,” mentioned Head.
Head mentioned he’s completely satisfied to be enjoying for Australia and seems like he’s in an incredible area in the meanwhile.
“And I woke up the next morning and I’m still on tour playing for Australia, I still get to do what I love to do. I’d love to be competing and playing but there’s another way I can support the guys the best I could and prepare the best way I could for another opportunity. I still feel like I’m in a great space. It’s just one week that didn’t go my way,” Head added.
He went on to say that India has actually skillful bowlers of their aspect, including that he was proud of how he was tackling them in Delhi.
“They’re extremely skilful bowlers, but I was really pleased with the way I was going forward and back and watching length and a few of the things I’d worked on. It was a small sample piece but over here small sample pieces can be a little bit of gold,” mentioned Head.
Finally, the 29-year-old mentioned it’s powerful to achieve momentum when the opposition is pretty much as good as India and may exert a lot strain.
“It’s tough to try to gain momentum when the team is as good as they are and they can exert that much pressure on you that it can crack,” Head added.
