New Delhi. Australia assistant coach Andrew MacDonald is confident that Will Pukowski’s spontaneous performance has led to a comeback after a break (with a head injury) and the inclusion of this young opener in the playing XI. If he goes, he won’t have trouble running. Pukowski was scheduled to play in the first Test at Uk Daled but was ruled out of the first two Tests due to a head injury in the first practice match. This is the ninth case of 22-year-old Pukowski. However, not all of these matters are related to cricket. Pukowski is now in the Australian squad for the remaining two matches of the series.

“We know about Will’s previous record,” McDonald told the Australian Associated Press. The record of his best performance on his return is very good. Pukowski is back in 2018 after being denied twice due to confusion after scoring his first century in a first-class match. Due to the setback, the young batsman returned after taking a long break on the last two occasions and hit a double century. Pukowski joined the Australian team on Thursday night and will take part in two practice sessions in Melbourne before heading to Sydney with the team. The third Test will be played in Sydney from January to January.

Given Pukowski a chance, Australia will regret itAlthough Pukowski is a great batsman, his record is good after the record, but Team India’s bowling is in great form at the moment. Jaspreet Bumrah and Mohammad Siraj have bowled Matthew Wade, Marnus Labushen and Travis Head. In the Melbourne Test, the Australian batsmen looked uneasy against the bouncer. Now, if Pukowski is given a chance, even fast bowlers against him will not miss to attack the bouncer. After which it may be easier to take his wicket. (With language input)
