Travis Head joins Steven Smith at Washington Freedom for Major League Cricket 2024

Travis Head has elected not to rest following the T20 World Cup and will instead join Steven Smith to play in Major League Cricket's second season after signing with Washington Freedom. Head, who is presently playing in the IPL with Sunrisers Hyderabad, was plainly exhausted toward the finish of the Australian summer having required a rest during the home white-ball series against West Indies in February before an additional four months of relentless cricket which incorporated the visit through New Zealand, the IPL and the T20 World Cup. Head has decided to proceed with his 2024 playing odyssey by marking with Opportunity, simply seven days after Smith joined the establishment. Australia has no global responsibilities after the T20 World Cup until a white-ball visit through Britain in September. Head and Smith will play under Opportunity's new mentor, previous Australia skipper Ricky Ponting after he as of late supplanted Greg Shipperd. Opportunity as of late reported the marking of New Zealand allrounder Rachin Ravindra. They held two abroad players from the 2023 season in Marco Jansen and Akeal Hosein. Head joins Smith, Adam Zampa (Los Angeles Knight Riders), Spencer Johnson (Knight Riders) and Tim David (MI New York) as affirmed Australian signings for the second time of MLC, with more expected to join for the competition what begins following the T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies closes on June 29.
