Will Pucovski in the race against time to make Ashes squad after latest concussion

Will Pucovski: Chris Rogers said the batter is “pretty positive” after the latest setback and last season showed what he can do.

Victoria’s coach Chris Rogers believes Will Pucovski can still participate in the first Ashes Test despite missing the team’s first Sheffield Shield game against New South Wales due to his recent concussion.

Pucovski’s most recent concussion, added to a long list from his teens, occurred during the Nets earlier this month and was classified as minor, but he will not travel to Sydney over the weekend.

Pucovski was already recovering from the shoulder reconstruction he underwent after his testing debut in January. His pitch is still disabled, but when he suffered the concussion, he was on his way to playing cricket at home.

It is hoped he will be available for the return fixture against New South Wales at the MCG next month and then potentially the third Shield game the two states are looking to pencil in during November, although for anyone selected in the Test squad there will be quarantine periods in Queensland to factor in.

Earlier this week, 25yearold Derbyshire wicket-keeper batter Harvey Hosein was forced to retire from the game on medical advice due to multiple concussions.

Will Pucovski continues to consult with specialists and Rogers said he was feeling “pretty positive” about his latest recovery.

“It’s a good question,” Rogers said when asked when there are too many blows. “Nothing that I can really answer. He sees specialists so they’ll be talking to him about that and obviously, that’s got to play a role at some stage but at the moment, he’s still keen to continue on.”He’s been through this before, he knows what it’s like. He’s a pretty resilient guy now. If you go through this many setbacks you’ve got to have something about yourself. He’s going alright. Yesterday when I spoke to him, he seemed pretty positive so that’s all I can say.”

Rogers believes that Pucovski’s accomplishments last season. Scoring twice a hundred in a row. And then making his Test debut against India after another recovery from a concussion, will benefit him.

He said the selectors, who will include new member Tony Dodemaide starting next month. Want to be sure there will be no worries about the short ball. But a big score could give him a spot alongside David Warner at the top of the line. Put it in order.

The India Test was the last competitive match Pucovski played.

“He’s shown before he can hit the ground running as he did last year with the two 200s, so if he’s good enough to do something like that again then the selectors would definitely have something to consider,” Rogers said.

“He’s one of those players there’s an element of class. You know when you throw balls at him that it’s different.”

Test captain Tim Paine said his colleague Victoria‘s starter Marcus Harris, who is the starter on the test team. After their game against India at the Gabba in January, would be the favorite if Pucovski were unavailable.

But Usman Khawaja, who averaged 96.80 in the five tests he started. Has made a strong statement at 174 against South Australia.
