Travis Head, the left-handed opening batter for Australia in ODIs, was spotted on camera, unintentionally fooling the crowd at the Mangaung Oval in Bloemfontein, on September 9, Saturday. The hilarious moment happened when the 29-year-old walked back towards the pavilion to get his bat, after smashing Anrich Nortje for a bump ball straight to David Miller in the cover region, which the fans thought of, as a caught-out dismissal.

Notably, South Africa captain Temba Bavuma won the toss and decided to put Australia into batting first on a placid pitch for the bowlers. The opening duo of David Warner and Travis Head took a full toll, scoring around 10 runs to the over in the powerplay.

During the eighth over of the Australian innings, Travis Head creamed a half volley outside the off stump from Anrich Nortje, but he managed to find David Miller at cover, on the bounce. When the crowd saw the left-handed opening batter walk back to the pavilion after playing the stroke, they were sure about South Africa picking up their first wicket of the day, until he returned to the crease for the play to continue.

Funny enough, the next ball from Anrich Nortje was yet another half-volley outside the off stump, but this time, he creamed it past the left of David Miller at cover, to register one more four to his tally. When Tabraiz Shamsi picked up the key wicket of Travis Head for 64 runs off 36 balls with nine fours and three maximums, the Australian score read 109-1 in just 11.5 overs.

Shortly afterwards, David Warner, his fellow opening partner, completed his 20th ODI century, before getting castled by Andile Phehlukwayo for 106 runs off 93 balls with 12 fours and three maximums.
