Australian batsman Travis Head’s bat caught fire on Wednesday. He has created history by scoring a double century in Australia’s domestic cricket match. Playing for South Australia during the Marsh Cup, this player scored a double century in just 114 balls.
Head has earlier scored two double centuries in domestic ODI cricket. He is the first Australian player to do so. This player, who played for Bangalore in the IPL, completed a double century in 114 balls in the Marsh Cup match. Head played a blistering innings of 230 runs in 127 balls. He hit 28 fours and 8 sixes during his innings. 160 runs were scored with only fours and sixes.
The ball went out of the stadium
During this smoky innings, Head hit such a six that the ball went out of the stadium on the road. A young man passing by caught the ball. Its video is going viral on social media. Thanks to this innings of Head, South Australia scored 391 runs in 48 overs. Apart from Head, Jack Witherald played an innings of 97 runs. However, he did not manage to score a century. The match was reduced to 48-48 overs due to rain.
Played for RCB twice in IPL
