Will Pucovski suffers concussion for 10th time
Pucovski, 23, took the blow to the head last week and is managing his recovery with the Victoria medical staff. The right-hander scored 62 on his Test debut against India in January, before having surgery on a shoulder injury.
He is yet to play since, but is expected to be in contention to open alongside David Warner in the Ashes. The five-Test series is due to begin in Brisbane on December 8.
The first of Pucovski’s concussions came in an Australian Rules Football game as a teenager. The causes of the other eight include bouncers, a dive to complete a run, a blow in the field and a door in his home.
Last year, Pucovski, who averages 53.41 in first-class cricket, said his “brain has probably been through a bit more than your average 22-year-old’s” and as a result he has to do “a bit more rehab” to perform for Australia. (BBC)
