Australian batter Travis Head completed an incredible century against India in the World Test Championship 2023 at the Kennington Oval. Coming at the score of 76-3, Head had to rescue Australia from a precarious position with Steve Smith and the Adelaide native delivered. Taking his trademark aggressive approach,  Travis Head gradually improved his rate of scoring and reached his half-century in just 60 balls. 

Then after reaching the milestone, Head cut loose and significantly increased his scoring rate by majorly targeting the likes of  Umesh Yadav and Shardul Thakur. After battling the Indian attack and even taking a blow on his helmet, Travis Head reached his century in 106 balls with a tally of 15 fours and one six.

After the century, Head nearly reached his 150 as he ended Day 1 at a score of 146 in 156 balls with 22 fours and one six. On the back of this massive ton and a 95 by Steve Smith, Australia posted 327 in 86 overs as the Smith-Head duo posted a massive partnership of 251 runs.

Talking about this brilliant knock, Head talked about how he was attempting to get into good positions to get set and then score at a higher rate after the conditions got better for  batting. He also thanked his batting partner, Steve Smith for his performance and spoke about how Smith alleviated the pressure on him.

While speaking to the broadcasters, Travis Head said,  "Losing the toss this morning, we've done exceptionally well. There's still plenty there as you could see with that second new ball. A lot of hard work to go tomorrow morning but nice to make a really good start. I was trying to make sure I was in really good positions today. I got tested through parts of that. I just tried to work through those periods and be adjustable. It's nice when you've got a bloke at the other end playing as well as he is, it's a nice start."
