Why India and Pakistan fans are fighting over bat Travis Head used in World Test Championship
The cricket bat Travis Head used to plunder 163 runs in the World Test Championship final has gone viral with old foes India and Pakistan bickering over its origins.
Head scored his first ever century away from home soil to put India to the sword at The Oval in England on Wednesday in promising signs for the Aussies ahead of The Ashes.
However Pakistan cricket supporters are claiming their own champion Babar Azam contributed to the rise of Head in the WTC final.
Vision has emerged of Azam appearing to gift Head a massive cricket bat in the sheds during the 2021/22 tour of Pakistan.
Now jubilant Pakistan supporters are saying that Head used the same bat with new stickers to belt India around the ground at The Oval.
'Babar gifted his bat to Travis Head in 2021 and the rest is history,' one fan boasted.
