After the match while talking to the broadcasters, Travis Head said, “I just tried to take it one step at a time. As we have seen in this series, anything can happen with the wicket.

Elaborating the same, Travis Head said, “We were looking to make sure we executed our plans in the first innings, I feel we did that exceptionally well. We had to change the plans that we had set for these conditions when we played in Sri Lanka or Pakistan. There was some shift in the thinking and what we want to achieve individually. When the toss did not go our way, we just wanted to execute our plans. We did a fantastic job to come back from the pressure of the first two Tests.”

The 29-year-old showered praises on Australia spinner Nathan Lyon, saying he has been unbelievable for Australia.
