Travis Head joins Steven Smith at Washington Freedom for Major League Cricket 2024

Australia

Travis Head has elected not to rest following the T20 World Cup and will instead join Steven Smith to play in Major League Cricket’s second season after signing with Washington Freedom.

Head, who is currently playing in the IPL with Sunrisers Hyderabad, was clearly fatigued at the end of the Australian summer having required a rest during the home white-ball series against West Indies in February before another four months of non-stop cricket which included the tour of New Zealand, the IPL and the T20 World Cup.

Head has chosen to continue his 2024 playing odyssey by signing with Freedom, just a week after Smith joined the franchise. Australia does not have any international commitments after the T20 World Cup until a white-ball tour of England in September.

Freedom recently announced the signing of New Zealand allrounder Rachin Ravindra. They retained two overseas players from the 2023 season in Marco Jansen and Akeal Hosein.

Head joins Smith, Adam Zampa (Los Angeles Knight Riders), Spencer Johnson (Knight Riders) and Tim David (MI New York) as confirmed Australian signings for the second season of MLC, with more expected to join for the tournament which starts immediately after the T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies ends on June 29.
