Australia’s Test opener Will Pucovski is recovering from injury symptoms after suffering a head injury during a training session last week. Cricket Victoria said on Thursday. The 23-year-old has suffered nine injuries in his career and the latest setback is bound to raise concerns about his long-term health.
“Cricket Victoria has confirmed that Will Pucovski suffered a head injury during training with Victoria last Tuesday,” Cricket Victoria said in a statement on Thursday.
“Will is currently managing his recovery in consultation with CV’s medical staff. He hopes to return to training as soon as he is able to do so. “
According to cricket.com.au, the incident happened last Tuesday during a throwdown session in Victoria and Pucovsky is recovering from symptoms of an injury.
Pucovsky’s injury is a setback for Australia as he was a strong contender to open the innings alongside David Warner in the Ashes series later this year.
It is unclear when Victorians who have been in lockdown in Melbourne will be back in action.
The talented right-handed batsman, who is recovering from a shoulder injury earlier this year, hasn’t played any cricket since his Test debut at the SCG in January.
His last injury was when he was hit on the helmet by India pacer Karthik Tyagi during a warm-up match against India A last year.
