MORE than 300 runs in a week is the sort of scoring explosion Australian coach and selector Justin Langer needs from batsmen he desperatel­y wants to pick and Travis Head delivered that in style.

The South Australian captain lifted his team with what could become a career-defining Sheffield Shield doublecent­ury at the WACA, in front of Langer who was looking on from the stands.

Head’s imperious innings of 223 – he was finally out after 245 balls – helped the Redbacks to 8-510 declared, with Western Australia going into bat last night staring down the massive deficit.
