Australian opener Will Pucovski is set to miss six months of cricket action as he will undergo surgery next week on his injured right shoulder after diving on the Sydney Test against India. Puvovski managed to make his debut in the third test after missing out on the first two Tests due to a concussion injury in the practice games against India and was unfortunate to miss out again after playing just one Test due to his injury.
Former Australia batsman Chris Rogers who is the coach of Victoria Bushrangers told that Pucovski pulled up sore in the practice session for the Sheffield Shield game against New South Wales and he will now miss the entire domestic season as well as the World Test championship final if Australia manages to make it to Lords in June. Pucovski was called up to the Australian Test team on the back of an excellent domestic form.

Will Pucovski’s Impressive Debut
Will Pucovski had an immediate impact on the Australian batting after being added to the Australian XI in the third test at Syndey. He scored a valiant half-century on debut and was dismissed for 62, but it was evident of the 23-year old that he can bat for long periods of time making him a good prospect for the future series.
Will Pucovski has suffered a lot of concussion-related injuries which is something to be taken note of and he should be better prepared to play the short balls.
