South Australia’s youngest ever first-class captain Travis Head became Australian Test player 454 on October 7 2018 in the first Test against Pakistan in Dubai.
The flashy left-hander then dug in for his maiden Test Century at Manuka Oval, where he notched up 161 on home soil in Australia’s series win against Sri Lanka.
Having already steered the Redbacks to two consecutive Sheffield Shield finals as skipper, Head’s consistency and maturity was recognised with the coveted Lord Hampden Trophy as South Australia’s best-performed Shield player of the 2018-19 summer.
Head will be striving towards an Ashes berth when Australia take on England in early August.
