Head was rested for the opening rounds against Queensland and New South Wales after an extensive winter which included an Australia A tour and an Ashes series in England, but is again available for the games at Karen Rolton Oval on Sunday and Tuesday.
Opening batsman Jake Weatherald is still sidelined with a thigh injury which ruled him out of Thursday’s match against NSW, while Wes Agar has been omitted.
South Australia picked up a bonus point in the five-wicket win against the Blues, and return to Adelaide with five points from their two games at Allan Border Field.
Kane Richardson (3/25) and Joe Mennie (3/39) got the Redbacks off to a flying start against the Blues, while Tom Cooper finished the job with 52 not out to go with his 62 in the first match.
Leg-spinner Lloyd Pope took a wicket on his List A debut, while Alex Carey (36) and Jake Lehmann (37) each made solid contributions.
Entry to Karen Rolton Oval is free on Sunday and Tuesday. Play begins at 10:00am.
