Emerging cricketer Will Pucovski’s international career might not have taken off, but he is still pretty much in Australia’s long-term future plans. It has been learned that Pucovski happens to be one of the candidates named in the group of emerging batters and spin bowlers to head to the MRF Pace Foundation in Chennai for being a part of a ten-day training camp next month.
The 24-year-old, who made his Test debut against India at the SCG in January last year, could not don the whites again for the Aussies after suffering a shoulder dislocation that required immediate surgery. The injury kept him out of action for a while and he also ended up missing the Ashes 2021/22 later that year.
Will Pucovski looks to make a comeback to the Australian team
The ten-member group will be coached by former Sri Lankan cricketer Thilan Samaraweera who was also one of the members of the coaching staff for the Australia A team in Sri Lanka. Pace legend and three-time World Cup winner Glenn McGrath would also be making his presence felt during the camp. The veteran fast bowler’s role will be that of a coach of the group as he’s a consultant to the MRF Pace Foundation.
Meanwhile, the selector, as well as tour manager Tony Dodemaide, has explained how this experience would be handy for the players. “It is exciting to renew the partnership with the MRF Foundation and provide this group of young players with a truly unique experience,” Dodemaide said as quoted by ESPNcricinfo.
“Some players have toured the subcontinent in the past so this trip will further refine their skills while others will gain valuable new experience in these testing conditions,” he added. The training camp is scheduled to be held from August 7 to 17 and Pucovski will be joining the likes of Josh Philippe, Matthew Kuhnemann, Henry Hunt, Tanveer Sangha, Todd Murphy, Cooper Connolly and Teague Wyllie respectively.
