Ponting compared Vikramvir Head with ‘this’ legend, saying, ‘He puts pressure on the bowler at the start…’

The final match of World Test Championship 2023 is being played between India vs Australia. In this ongoing match at London’s K Oval ground, the Australian team has come out to bat first. Meanwhile, Australia scored 327 runs for 3 wickets on the first day. In this, Travis Head remained unbeaten scoring a century in the dugout. After this century, former Australian captain Ricky Ponting compared Head to the great wicket-keeper batsman Adam Gilchrist.

Speaking to the ICC, Ricky Ponting compared Travis Head to Adam Gilchrist. He also said that Head is scoring faster than Gilchrist scored. Talking about Head’s knock in Australia’s innings, he scored 163 runs. He also became the first batsman to score a century in a WTC final.

Ponting said, “He’s like Gilchrist. In fact, he’s probably running as fast as Gilchrist has ever done. His strike rate would have been 81 during the entire WTC qualification, which is higher than any other batsman who has scored more than 500 runs.”

He also said that Head’s confidence is growing with each match. He hits a boundary early in the innings. That’s what you want from a middle-order batsman. Head has scored 163 runs off 174 balls. This includes 25 fours and 1 six.

Speaking further, Ponting said, “His confidence is growing after every match. His strike rate is increasing. He puts pressure on the bowler by hitting boundaries early in the innings. That’s what you want from a middle-order batsman and he’s been doing it brilliantly for the last two years.”

By the end of the first day’s play, Head had put on a 251-run partnership with Smith. This included Smith’s unbeaten 95. “I think when he comes to bat first, you have to execute your plan properly,” Ponting said. It would be better not to attack him too much. Because, if you hit any bad ball, he will hit it hard. He must have learned how he bowled Head in the first innings. Surely he will do well in the second innings as well.”

Head into the tent on 163 runs
Although Ponting expressed hope for Head, Head, who scored 146 on the first day, did not last long on the second day. He was dismissed for 163 runs. Smith also celebrated his century on the second day and left the pitch on 121 runs. Currently, till the lunch break on the second day, the Australian team had scored 422 runs with the loss of 7 wickets. For India, Mohammad Shami, Mohammad Siraj and Shardul Thakur took 2 wickets each. Also, Akshar Patel, who came as a substitute, showed the way to the tent by running out Mitchell Starc.
