Pucovski is leaving for a 10-day training camp in India

Will Pucovski was appointed to an eight-person team that will travel to Chennai for a 10-day rookie minicamp in August, and he is still in Australia’s long-term plans.

After Covid, Cricket Australia’s coaches have resumed their long-standing partnership with the MRF Pace Foundation by sending a group of young hitters and spinners to Chennai for training.

Despite establishing his Test career in January 2021 vs India in Sydney, Pucovski, 24, has only took part first-class games. In that game, he dislocated his shoulder, necessitating surgery.

That occurrence after his comeback to first-class cricket in February caused brain injuries, causing him to take another layoff given his long history of head injuries. He then suffered a traumatic brain injury at Victoria training in October of last year, sidelining him from cricket for three months.

At the end of the season, he made a triumphant comeback for Victoria, scoring 59 against Western Australia in the Sheffield Shield final. Chairman George Bailey stated that they wanted him to have a long stretch of unbroken cricket without calling him up for Australia A or national service again, therefore they decided against taking him to Sri Lanka with the Australia A side.

During practice sessions, a single one-day match, and a 2 game, the eight players can team up with Indian players from the surrounding area.

Thilan Samaraweera, a former batter for Sri Lanka, will lead the group after serving on the training staff for something like the Australia A team there.

Glenn McGrath, a famous fast bowler for Australia, will serve as a coach there as well as serving as an advisor to the Training centre. The tour manager will be selector Tony Dodemaide.
