Will Pucovski had last year ruled himself out of contention for Test selection “due to matters pertaining to mental wellbeing”. Two years ago, at age 20, Pucovski had left cricket “indefinitely” over mental health issues. His inclusion in the Test team is a triumph of human spirit and his courage. He has had a fine run in domestic cricket in recent times, striking successive double centuries in two Sheffield Shield appearances, amassing 495 runs at an average of 247.50. In all likelihood, Pucovski will partner the seasoned David Warner at the top. His inclusion sets up a competition with fellow opener Joe Burns, who is feeling the heat after a disastrous start to the First-Class summer.
