Australian left-handed batsman, Travis Head will join Sussex for entire 2020 season. He was the part of recently concluded Ashes series where he scored 191 runs in eight innings against England, with the best score of 51.
"We wanted a top-four batsman to improve our team, and Travis will do that," head coach Jason Gillespie said. He's shown his class in his international career so far, he brings some useful off-spin, and he will offer good leadership support to our captains from his time leading South Australia and the Strikers" he added.
For Australia, Head has played 42 one-day internationals till now, in which he amassed 1273 runs at an average of 34.40 with the help of one century and ten half-centuries. Talking about his stats in Test International career, in 12 appearances for the team, he has scored 854 runs at an average of 42.70.
The 25-year-old left-hander is always known for his aggressive batting, and on his day, he can destroy even the best in the business. He has previously played for Worcestershire and Yorkshire and was set to sign for Sussex in the 2019 season, but his Ashes call-up meant he has to drop that contract.
After Sussex signed him for 2020 season, Head said, "I was disappointed not to have been able to take up my contract this summer so was thrilled that Jason Gillespie and Keith Greenfield, Sussex Cricket's director of cricket] were keen to lock me away for the 2020 season. I can't wait, with such a proud history, success is expected, and I want to play my part in achieving that."
