Travis Head Explains the Post-Ashes Drinks Scandal, Saying “Two Minutes Turned Into an Hour, Boys Got a Bit Fed up”

<p>The Ashes 2023 featured family-friendly entertainment with much of on-field drama and a dash of cricket controversy that split players and supporters equally. Even though Australia kept the Ashes, England won the fifth Test to force a 2-2 draw and bring the series to a close.</p>
<p>A second issue broke out hours after the post-game awards ceremony when news surfaced that England had skipped the usual post-series drinks with their Australian rivals. The issue was increased by Brendon McCullum, the England coach, saying earlier in the series that he wouldn’t be sharing a drink with his enemies anytime soon.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-120078″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-todayicsi-cseet-2023-july-session-results-will-be-announced-heres-how-to-download-download-2023-08-09t165021.781.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com todayicsi cseet 2023 july session results will be announced heres how to download download 2023 08 09t165021.781″ width=”1316″ height=”986″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-todayicsi-cseet-2023-july-session-results-will-be-announced-heres-how-to-download-download-2023-08-09t165021.781.jpg 259w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-todayicsi-cseet-2023-july-session-results-will-be-announced-heres-how-to-download-download-2023-08-09t165021.781-150×112.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1316px) 100vw, 1316px” title=”Travis Head Explains the Post-Ashes Drinks Scandal, Saying "Two Minutes Turned Into an Hour, Boys Got a Bit Fed up" 3″></p>
<p>Ben Stokes, the captain of England, promptly put out the flames by stating that the two teams did meet, but it was in a nightclub rather than the locker room.</p>
<p>To be clear… Multiple last minute incidents caused our wrap to take longer than intended. Instead of meeting in the locker area, Stokes had tweeted, “We decided to meet up at the nightclub.</p>
<p>Travis Head, an Australian batter, has since spoken out about the incident and said that it was rather overplayed in the media. He said that although they did make a few attempts to knock on England’s door, the hour-long wait left them feeling a little frustrated.</p>
<p>On the Willow Talk podcast, Head said that the situation had been “a little overplayed.” “I believe we lingered around briefly after the game. They had a few retirees and, I believe, a few staff members who were leaving. The lads were a little frustrated after we knocked a couple of times and were given two minutes, which stretched into an hour.</p>
<p>He acknowledged that the two teams did eventually cross paths at a club, but it wasn’t ‘by plan’.</p>
<p>However, several of the males later caught up with them, and I’ve spoken to a number of the men I was close to on the time discrepancies. A little depressing, but I doubt that was deliberate,” Head added.</p>
<p>“We didn’t go to the nightclub together. Again, it was entirely by design that both crews ended up at the same location. I believe it was a Monday night, and because there aren’t many places open on a Monday night in London, we ended up staying there. shared one or two Vodka Red Bulls before heading to the airport,” he continued.</p>
<p>Head said that the players themselves made light of the development. “There were a few boys that I know, [like] Ben Duckett was sort of chirping me a little bit about us dogging them and I chirped in a little bit about them dogging us, so all in good spirits,” said Head.</p>
<p>Like I said, I believe we all kind of laughed it off, but the media kind of hyped it up. Although such things do happen, it wasn’t meant to be, he continued.</p>
