Travis Head has revealed his determination to have a positive impact in all forms of cricket as Worcestershire CCC’s main overseas player this summer.
The Australian left hander wants to help the County have a successful summer and also boost his own chances of playing Test cricket.
Head, who skippered the Adelaide Strikers to their recent Big Bash triumph, is scheduled to play 10 Specsavers County Championship matches in addition to the bulk of the Royal London One-Day Cup and Vitality Blast.
The 24-year-old, who has won 34 one-day international and 10 Twenty20 caps, said: “I’m a young player who is still learning his craft but more importantly I’m going to Worcestershire to help the team to win more matches this season.
“I’ve had a good season for Australia, South Australia and The Strikers this summer but I want to improve in all three formats and play Test cricket for Australia.
“I know Ben Cox and Ross Whiteley from their previous stints at Darren Lehmann’s academy in Adelaide so when I walk into the Worcestershire dressing room I won’t be a complete stranger.
“I want to make a consistent impact in white-ball cricket and in the Specsavers County Championship.
“I want to be consistent for South Australia in our remaining Sheffield Shield matches and to continue from where I leave off for Worcestershire in the County Championship.
“I am my own harshest critic but I am also a very positive, glass half-full person so I want to help Worcestershire play an exciting brand of cricket this season.
“The club has given me a fantastic opportunity and I want to grab it with both hands.”
