Head added to Oz squad for Sri Lanka ODIs


The Cricket Australia selectors have added South Australian batsman Travis Head to the ODI squad for the tour of Sri Lanka.

National Selector Rod Marsh said: “Travis is a long term prospect for Australian cricket in all formats and we think he will benefit greatly from working in the conditions we have here in Sri Lanka.

“He will arrive here a few days earlier than the other ODI players so he can take the opportunity to work with the Test team as they prepare for the third Test.”

Head is currently playing for Yorkshire in the English County competition and will arrive in Colombo on Tuesday.
