Statement – Will Pucovski

Cricket Victoria can provide the following update on Will Pucovski following confirmation yesterday that he has been ruled out of Victoria’s upcoming Marsh Sheffield Shield match against New South Wales at the MCG.

The 23 year old is continuing to manage his recovery from mild concussion symptoms.

Cricket Victoria’s Dr Trefor James said:

“Will is continuing to experience some mild symptoms consistent with concussion. From a medical perspective, Will is very well supported by the team around him to help manage his recovery. Given his history, it’s obviously important that we allow whatever is time is required to make a full recovery.”

Cricket Victoria’s General Manager – Cricket Performance Shaun Graf said Pucovski attended training on Wednesday.

“In good news, Will was back at Victorian training yesterday at the MCG. It is great to have him back in the squad, even if only on light duties. That said, he won’t be available for selection for the Shield match starting at the MCG on Friday.”

“In terms of his return to play, we are working towards a couple of scenarios. We’re currently in conversations with Cricket Australia regarding another Shield match in mid-November plus we’ll also be hosting a state 2nd XI match at the MCG later in the month. Ideally, he’d be able to play those two four-day matches and allow Australian selectors to make a judgment from there.”

The Victorian squad for the upcoming Sheffield Shield match will be announced this morning.
