Former Australian Test Cricketer Chris Rogers, who is currently coaching the Victorian national team, has said that the batter of Will Pucovski “wants to continue playing cricket” despite suffering a recent 11th bout. Pucovski, a 24-year-old who made his international debut against India with 62 shots last year, suffered another setback while playing hot volleyball shortly before the final day of a Sheffield Shield match against South Australia on February 12.
He began to show symptoms of urgency during the field and was immediately replaced. Pucovski is playing the role of her first daughter in more than 12 months since her first Test to India in January 2021.

Rogers, who made 25 Trials and is currently coaching Victoria state, told SEN’s Whateley on Thursday that he would speak with Pucovski on Thursday to pave the way for the player to play professional cricket again following a new fight.
“Our conversations are going on in the background. Will (Pucovski) has shown that he wants to continue working. We just have to measure everything that happens at the moment. It is in and around the Oval Junction for a while. on day four of the Shield game and it’s tomorrow (Thursday) I’ll have a chat with you then to see how it goes, ”Rogers said.
“I think it’s pretty optimistic, we just need to have those conversations and make sure everything is fine. I’m sure it will come out,” Rogers added.
Earlier this month, Rogers said he hoped Pucovski could emerge from the setbacks but it would take time. “Brain can repair, but it takes time – not 30 days. This needs to be very sensible. Supported by this by cricket, sure, but there is no pressure.” Rogers has said in discussions that the young man should retire to play professional cricket.
Pucovski has emerged as a shining batting prospect for Australia with an opening goal of 1,870 runs averaging 53.42 in 25 first-class games.
