I feel like I was saying this all of last summer too but I think saying Heads propensity to get out for a middling score is a mindset thing is an easy leap to make but I think its a bit of a fallacy. Its more to do with his strengths and weaknesses as a batsman.Be great to find any kid with the mental fortitude and application required for test batting - a batsmen that understands how to build an innings by pushing the ball around for one and two's with the occasional boundary from bad ball's - rather than an equally talented batsmen that 'look to play some expansive risky shots just to get on the highlights reel before lunch..!'
Frustrating thing about Head is - if he can make 25, he can make 50 and then 100 - he just needs to keep his namesake when reaching the early targets...
Overs or under on the tease averaging more than 20 this summer? I'll take undersWell he is scoring runs atm followed up his 160 against WA with a One day hundred 100 off 60 odd balls against QLD
Hopefully if he does get picked he can continue his form into the test arena
He always does this and then the selectors keep picking the bloke at test level getting out the same way on repeat…Head just dismissed for 230..! Hear what you're saying Luke, but as a selector, this type of form is very hard to ignore...
Margot Robbie - I've had to change my number 3 times, sending me nude selfies, borderline stalker, just wish she'd get on with her life..!I'd hope I can get with Margot Robbie, we both know neither will happen! Head is just the modern day Shaun Marsh, too good for Shield but a tease at test level. Reminds me of Graham Hick!
If the first test was next weekend, Head would be - and absolutely should be - in that test team. There's still a little bit to go between now and the first test, but unless someone else who was on the fringe goes on an absolute heater or the wheels fall right off for Head, he has to get picked for the final middle order batting spot.Head just dismissed for 230..! Hear what you're saying Luke, but as a selector, this type of form is very hard to ignore...
