“Aakash Chopra joked that Travis Head scored his first century against a team that wasn’t from India.”

Travis Head, the opener for SRH, played a fantastic inning against RCB. He hit the ball hard and scored his first ever century in the IPL. Head made 102 runs in just 41 balls. He hit nine fours and eight sixes, showing his aggressive style of batting.
The ex-cricketer who now talks about the game on TV said something interesting. He felt better when Travis Head played really well and scored his first ever century against a team that didn’t have any Indian players.

Travis Head’s first century excellent performance set a strong foundation for SRH. It allowed other powerful batsmen like Heinrich Klaasen and Aiden Markram to attack RCB’s bowlers easily. Aakash Chopra, a former cricketer from India, praised Head and his opening partner Abhishek Sharma for giving SRH a great start in the game.

My heart felt a bit better for once: Aakash Chopra.

The cricketer-turned-commentator expressed relief and amusement at Travis Head’s impressive performance against a team without an Indian name. He found it noteworthy that Head, known for his aggressive batting style, displayed his full potential in this match. This sentiment reflects the commentator’s previous observations about Head’s performance against teams with predominantly Indian players

Travis Head and Abhishek Sharma are both hitting the ball really hard these days. It’s like one end of the pitch is good and the other end is bad. The bowlers are getting hit a lot from both sides. They just keep hitting. I felt a bit relieved,” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.

“I wasn’t happy because the Royal Challengers Bangalore team was getting hit. It was because Travis Head hasn’t done well against teams without Indian players before. The last time he played well was against an Indian team on 19th November (in the ODI World Cup final) and the Mumbai Indians. I thought he didn’t like teams with Indian names, but this time he did well against Bengaluru. He gave their bowlers a hard time,” the former KKR player added.

The away team won by 25 runs after stopping Faf du Plessis’ team from scoring more than 262 runs. Virat Kohli and the RCB captain started playing aggressively, but the SRH bowlers quickly got them out, taking control of the game. The crowd at Chinnaswamy Stadium had hope when Dinesh Karthik scored 83 runs off 35 balls, but he didn’t get enough help from his teammates, so their hopes were crushed in the end.
