After a lifetime of injuries and concussions, Pucovski’s history has caught up to him. In doubts for the Ashes later in the year, Pucovski missed a match for Victoria in the Sheffield league recently.
Victoria Coach Chris Rogers, believes Will can still make it to the Ashes and play for his country. Since his teenage years he has suffered multiple concussions and recently went through a shoulder rebuild as well.
Will’s fitness for the Ashes is a big question, and even though speculation remains that he might make it, his selection seems dicey at best.
Recently, a 25 year old cricketer, Harvey Hosein was also forced to retire due to nagging injuries and concussions. Will continues his best to try to heal up before the Ashes, as Chris Rogers said, “It’s a good question. 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 you. He’s going alright. Yesterday when I spoke to him, he seemed pretty positive so that’s all I can say.”
