Shane Warne’s prediction about Travis Head being future star for Australia goes viral | Trending News


Australian opener Travis Head saved his best for the last as he smashed 137 runs off 120 balls in the final of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2023 against India at the Narendra Modi stadium in Ahmedabad on Sunday.

The 29-year-old won the player of the match as Australia chased 241 with six wickets remaining to win an unprecedented sixth World Cup title. Head was the top-scorer for Australia in the semifinal as well as he made 62 off just 48 balls against South Africa.

The talent of the left-handed opening batsman, who made his debut for Australia in 2016, was also recognised by the legendary Shane Warne.

Considered to be one of the greatest bowlers in the history of cricket, Warne died of a heart attack in 2022 at the age of 52. In a post on X, formerly Twitter, he predicted Travis Head as one of the “future stars for Australia”.

In a tweet on December 6, 2016, Warne wrote, “I’m a big fan of Travis Head as a cricketer, I believe he will be a future star for Australia in all forms of the game.”

Warne’s old tweet is now going viral again after Head’s tremendous showing in the World Cup final.
Commentator Harsha Bhogle wrote, “Wow, Warnie. You always liked players who took the game on. And Travis Head did.” “Shane Warne… Not only one of the greatest cricketers but also the brightest minds. Would have been jubilant yesterday l seeing Head leading Aussies to World Cup win,” said another X user.

Head became the first player to score two hundreds in men’s ICC tournament finals. He had scored 163 in the first innings of the World Test Championship final against India earlier this year. Head also became the fourth player to win the player of the match awards in the semifinal and final of the same World Cup, the others being Mohinder Amarnath in 1983, Aravinda de Silva in 1996 and Shane Warne in 1999.
