SYDNEY: Travis Head isn't sure he'll regain his place on Australia's center order for the ultimate Ashes test against England after Usman Khawaja took his chance by crushing a bunch of twins in Sydney.
Head, who scored 152 in the first innings of the collection opener at Gabba, missed game four in Sydney after constructively testing for COVID-19, with Khawaja named as his replacement for his first test in 2 1/2 years .
Khawaja didn't disappoint, hitting 137 in the first inning and 101 not in the second, giving Australia a huge headache ahead of the ultimate game in Hobart on Friday.
Skipper Pat Cummins has stated that it could be difficult to drop Khawaja after the batsman's efficiency.
The Sydney Test ended in a draw, although Australia had already closed the series by winning the first three games.
"We'll wait and see. I think he played wonderfully," said batsman Head number five, who averaged 62 in the series.
"We know he's versatile and how he can play. If there was a place on the team he would take this opportunity.
“He took it with every finger, he's wonderful.
“There will be some tough choices to make. These discussions have not yet been held. "
With Khawaja capable of beating on the Prime and Center series respectively, Australia might be tempted to play him as the opener in place of Marcus Harris, who has only played in the collection for half a century so far.
Head said Harris, who had 38 and 27 points in Sydney, was under no pressure to keep his place.
“He's playing for Australia, he's doing a job. He was fantastic in Melbourne and played a big part in making us win the game, ”he added.
"He will be disappointed that he didn't get any runs in this game and that he had a great opportunity."
