Travis Head, the Australian cricket sensation, showcased remarkable reflexes during the pink ball Test against West Indies at the Gabba. The cricketing world was left stunned as Head executed a quick run-out, dismissing West Indian batter Kavem Hodge off a delivery from Nathan Lyon.

Dominant Australian Performance on Day 3

Australia’s solid fielding and bowling unit proved challenging for the West Indies’ batting lineup on Day 3. Despite a promising fifty-run partnership for the second wicket, the Caribbean team struggled to build pressure. Earlier, Australia, recovering from a mini-collapse on Saturday, successfully reduced the Windies’ lead and declared with a wicket to spare on Day 2.

Travis Head’s Quick Hands Dismiss West Indies Batter

As the West Indies faced difficulties with a scoreboard reading 123/4, hopes were pinned on the partnership between Hodge and Justin Greaves. The duo added 25 runs for the fifth wicket before Travis Head intervened with a moment of brilliance. In the 49th over bowled by Nathan Lyon, Hodge flicked the ball to short leg where Head was strategically positioned. Displaying clean fielding, Head not only caught the ball but swiftly threw it at the stumps in one fluid motion.

Despite Hodge’s desperate attempt to dive back, Head’s accurate throw left him short. The third umpire reviewed the call, revealing that Hodge’s bat had bounced outside the crease, and despite being over the line, he had not made his crease as the bat was still in the air.
