Travis Head is Ian Healy's future "Australian captain" for the Ind vs Australia game.

After being benched for the first Test against India, former Australian wicketkeeper Ian Healy chose Travis Head to lead the team longer term.

In recent home games, Head has performed really well, and in order to be ready for a difficult journey to India, he has meticulously worked on the worn-out grounds. Despite this, Matt Renshaw started the first game of the season in place of him. Australia’s attempt was a disaster because they lost by innings.

He possesses the qualities of a commander. Who will lead us in the future? Marnus wouldn’t likely make a competent commander. Travis Head is one of them. He has been the leader of South Australia since he was 21 years old, and right now, rather of supporting him, Healy said on Sen radio, we are playing with him.

Pat Cummins, the current Test captain, and the head are both precisely 29 years old. Healy predicted that Head will soon take Smith’s spot as the Test opener.

He soon will be our opener, I think. Either Warner or Khawaja will take their position, depending on who departs first.They may both depart simultaneously.

Travis Head is a participant in the conversation for this test, according to Pat Cummins.

According to Australia’s captain Pat Cummins, Travis Head is “very much in negotiations” to play in the second Test, raising the possibility that the middle-order batsman would really be selected. Before an exhausting trip to India, the South Australian has been in terrific form recently at home and has meticulously prepared on the worn-out surfaces.

Nevertheless, Matt Renshaw sat on the sidelines for the opening contest of the series. Australia suffered an innings-long defeat, making the experiment a disaster.

He told the media before the second Test match at the Arun Jaitley Stadium that he will surely be debated during this Test, just like he was during the first.

India will kick off the second Test match on February 17. The last two games will be held in Ahmedabad and Indore.
