Melbourne. Australia’s opener Test batsman Will Pucovski has once again been hit in the head. He had suffered a head injury during a practice session on Tuesday. But the surprising thing is that its effect is visible after a week. However, due to the injury this time, concerns about his health have increased.
According to the report of ‘The Australian’, this is the 10th time when this batsman has been a victim of concussion. In fact, Pukowski was doing a throw-down session with Victoria last week. During this, a ball had hit his head. However, he did not realize the injury then and continued training. However, after a few days, symptoms related to concussion started appearing in him.
According to the newspaper report, Victoria’s medical team is currently treating this batsman and he is much better than before.
Pukowski’s health better than ever
Cricket Victoria said in a statement on Thursday that Cricket Victoria can confirm that Will Pucovski suffered a head injury during practice last Tuesday. He is currently undergoing treatment with Cricket Victoria’s medical team. He wants to return to the field soon.
Made his Test debut against India this year
Earlier, in the practice match against India-A last year, he was hit on the helmet by Indian fast bowler Karthik Tyagi. For this reason, he was not available in the opening matches of the Border-Gavaskar series. He made his debut in the third Test of the series in Sydney and scored 62 runs in the first innings. But after that he did not get a chance to play the second Test match.
Pukowski’s injury raises concerns for Australia
Pukowski’s injury is a setback for Australia as he was set to open the Ashes series with David Warner later this year. The talented right-handed batsman, who is recovering from a shoulder injury earlier this year, hasn’t played any cricket since his debut Test at the SCG in January.
