The batter continues his comeback from the latest concussion he suffered last month
Victoria named their Sheffield Shield squad on Saturday to face Tasmania at the Junction Oval in Melbourne on Tuesday but Pucovski was not included. They released a statement saying Pucovski remained under “active medical management” by Cricket Victoria and Cricket Australia doctors and no timeline has been set for a return to Shield cricket.
But he has been selected for the 2nd XI side that will host Tasmania’s 2nd XI at Mervyn G Hughes Oval in Footscray. Should he get through that match there is a chance he could be made available for Victoria’s final Shield match of the season against Western Australia at the WACA starting on March 23.
