Travis Head scored his second century of the series to propel Australia to a safe score on the first day of the final Test match at Hobart.

After a tumultuous morning session, Head alongside Marnus Labuschange stabilised the scoreboard with a counterattacking knock putting up a partnership of 71 runs off 74 balls when Labuschange was clean bowled by Stuart Broad.

Head continued onto building his innings and punished anything that was full. His cover drives were especially vicious and were played with intent.

Head slowed down for a fair bit when he was close to his hundred and looked nervous against the off stump line that England bowled at him.

He completed his century in 112 balls, his second blazing hundred in this series and his fourth over all. Head put on 121 runs alongside Cameron Green who later scored another 50 in the series.

After completing his 100, Head got out on the very next ball, having leading edged a ball to Ollie Robinson at mid on.

At the time of writing, Australia were batting at 236/5 after 57.2 overs with Green and Alex Carey in the middle.
