Coach Andrew McDonald confirmed that the World Cup’s Travis Head would miss the first half due to a fracture in the opener’s wrist

Australia’s star player Travis Head was caught out of the competition for the opening part of the World Cup, which was dealt with as a series. The news was confirmed by head coach Andrew McDonald’s tragic wrist injury while performing in the fourth ODI match against South Africa.

Head was the most productive batter over past tournaments; hence, his absence in the Australian team created a high level of emptiness over the top-order match. In the absence of a veteran cricketer, Mitchell Marsh rose up to open the inning for Australia in the final ODI match against South Africa. However, Cameron Green is also an alternative option for the opening batting spot in the Super 50 clash. But the most devastating thing would be that the team might miss the effective batsmanship of Travis for sure.

The team coach, Andrew McDonald, has also highlighted the past situation of Travis, who was required to retire hurt in the recent matches that happened against South Africa. The timing was still unfair to us, but the best thing is that he doesn’t require surgery right now. But he might be missing a couple of games to get well soon, says McDonald in a press conference.
