The Indian cricket team fans would certainly still feel the pain given by Travis Head in the ICC finals, and the Australian batter has yet again expressed his elation over the prospects of India versus Australia in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Head denied India ending their ICC trophy drought last year twice, and the Indian fans are jokingly praying that the Kangaroos must not qualify for the T20 World Cup 2024 final, hoping the Men in Blue to clinch the trophy, but the Aussie star wants another showdown between them.

India's ICC Final Heartbreaks Revived by Travis Head

Team India narrowly missed out on winning both the World Test Championship and the ODI World Cup last year under Rohit Sharma’s captaincy, with Australia shattering their dreams by winning both finals, thanks to Head's blistering batting.

Notably, Head was the main architect of India’s heartbreaking defeats in the WTC final and ODI World Cup 2023 final, scoring centuries and winning the Player of the Match award on both occasions.

However, the fierce onslaught unleashed by Head in the ODI World Cup 2024 final was the most painful and still echoes loudly in the hearts of Indian fans, as he shattered India's hopes of ICC glory once again.

With Ahmedabad’s Narendra Modi Stadium brimming with massive expectations, Head's relentless assault helped Australia beat India by six wickets in the final to lift their sixth trophy.

With the grand finale of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 scheduled for June 29 at the Kensington Oval in Barbados, many fans anticipate another thrilling chapter in the timeless rivalry between India and Australia, and Head teased Rohit Sharma and his team over the prospects.

Travis Head excited for potential India vs Australia T20 World Cup 2024 Final

Recently, Head has shared his thoughts on a potential India vs Australia final in the T20 World Cup 2024. The Australian batter believes that Team India will be driven by a desire for revenge after suffering defeats at the hands of Australia in the finals of the WTC and ODI World Cup last year.

Travis Head was quoted as saying by Times of India: “It would be nice. It would be nice to be in the final. I think everyone in India would love that, especially considering what's happened in the last two finals. So, I'm sure India wants some revenge at some point. There would be good theater around it if that were the case. Let's hope that we're in it, and let's hope you're in it, and we'll see what happens.”

Head also shared his experience of playing in the IPL 2024 for Sunrisers Hyderabad (SRH). He said that it was a really enjoyable stint and that it was very nice to have familiar faces like Pat Cummins and Daniel Vettori on the team. Head hailed Abhishek Sharma as an exceptional talent and said he really loved his time with the youngster in the IPL 2024.

Notably, India will kick off their T20 World Cup 2024 campaign against Ireland on June 5 at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York, while Australia will play their first game against Oman on June 6 at Kensington Oval in Barbados.
