WATCH | Travis Head dismissed on duck minutes after saying 'happy memories' at Narendra Modi Stadium

The Australian opener Travis Head played a match-winning knock to beat India in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad and is enjoying red-hot form in the Indian Premier League 2024.

Sunrisers Hyderabad endured a poor start to their innings in the ongoing IPL 2024 Qualifier 1 against Kolkata Knight Riders on Tuesday, May 21. The ace pacer Mitchell Starc bowled out in-form SRH opener Travis Head on the very second ball of the match to give KKR a dream start at Narendra Modi Stadium in Ahmedabad.

Mitchell Starc produced a brilliant length delivery to take Head by surprise which ripped off two stumps. Head was also bowled out on a golden duck in his last innings against Punjab Kings in Hyderabad. 

Notably, Head highlighted his 'happy memories' at Narendra Modi Stadium just before the kickoff. The left-handed batter famously scored a match-winning century in the ICC ODI World Cup 2023 final at the same venue to stun Indian cricket fans on November 19.

"Great to be back at the Narendra Modi Stadium," Head told broadcasters after the toss. "I've some happy memories here." 

However, the SRH batter failed to replicate his World Cup innings in the crucial Qualifier 1. Head also struggled to make an impact during the league-stage game against Gujarat Titans at Narendra Modi Stadium earlier this season.
