As the youngest captain in South Australian first-class history, Travis Head has already steered his Redbacks to two consecutive Sheffield Shield finals. A gutsy unbeaten 137 in the trying Alice Springs conditions to draw the match underpinned his leadership and desire to lead his side to Shield glory.
The exciting left-hander has become a mainstay in Australia’s T20 and One-Day sides as his aggressive and natural skill can be deployed throughout the top and middle orders, and was even selected to captain the ODI side on the cancelled Australia A tour of South Africa.
A fitting maiden ODI century on Australia Day at the Adelaide Oval will remain as a day to remember for the 23-year-old, and in recent times he also recorded an unbeaten century (retired) in an Australian intra-squad match before the Bangladesh Test tour.
