Virender Sehwag praises Australia’s brave move despite Head’s injuries.

Surprisingly, Virender Sehwag, the former Indian opener, has praised Australia’s management for their audacious choice to continue with Travis Head despite the left-handed batter missing a large chunk of the tournament due to injury.

Head missed the first part of the World Cup after breaking his left hand during Australia’s trip to South Africa a month before the competition. Nonetheless, Head’s inclusion on the 15-man roster indicates that Australia’s management believes in his skills.

This choice proved wise for Australia, as Head hit a century in the World Cup final at the Narendra Modi Stadium against India, helping the Baggy Greens win a record-tying sixth championship.

In his congrats to Australia, Sehwag conveyed his respect for Head’s outstanding performance. On X, he said, “Travis Head was simply unbelievable, was the Player of the Match in WTC finals, won the semis for Aus, and played one of the best-ever innings in a WC Final to finish the game.”

He also praised Australia’s choice to keep Head in the team despite his early injury setback, calling it a “top decision.” Despite losing in the finals, Sehwag expressed delight in the Indian team’s efforts during the event.

The captain of Australia, Pat Cummins, praised the team management for their “risky decision” to retain Head in the lineup and gave credit to the medical staff and selectors for their work.

Australia chose to bowl first in the exciting final, limiting India to 240 in 50 overs. Mitchell Starc led the Australian bowling assault with stats of 3/55. India had Australia at 47/3 in the chase, but Travis Head’s incredible 137-run performance lifted the Australians to victory by six wickets.
