𝕁𝕚𝕠𝕋𝕧𝕧𝕚𝕟𝕖𝕖 – Former Australian cricket team’s great wicketkeeper-batsman Adam Gilchrist is confident that David Warner will play in the Sydney Test.
But he is not sure about Will Pucovski’s appearance in the third Test match to be played against the Indian team starting on January 7.
The Australian cricket team has included David Warner and Will Pucovski, who are recovering from a head injury, in the team for the remaining two Tests against India.
Australia opener batsman Joe Burns, who has been struggling with poor form, has been dropped from the team.
The former Australian cricketer told Fox Sports News, “The way I see David Warner, he was very close to playing cricket in Melbourne also.”
And that’s why he was brought here so that he does not get stuck due to the closure of the boundary but of course he did not get a chance to play in Melbourne.
Former Australian wicketkeeper player Adam Gilchrist said, “Australia has to train here in Melbourne for two days, and then they will move to Sydney.”
So I hope he will be ready to play the next Test match. But the question is who will bat with him on the second left.
Adam Gilchrist believes that Will Pucovski is not scheduled to play in the next Test match.
He further said, if I believe that you include any player in the team to feed him like Will Pucovski, then you probably want to feed him but it is not so sure.
The former Australian cricketer said that he is probably bringing him to the team so that he can practice at the top level.
And to be able to connect fully with his team and at the same time, he was able to do a high level of training.
Will Pucovski was considered the strongest contender for opening innings in the first Test.
But the 22-year-old suffered a head injury during the day-night practice match and was ruled out of the first two Tests due to a dizzy condition.
Adam Gilchrist said that Matthew Wade, who started the innings in the first two Tests, has made a very strong claim.
He further said, Matthew Wade has made a very strong claim to remain in the top order by showing commitment and determination to struggle.
He could not take advantage of a good start but I think the team management will probably keep him in the top order with David Warner and not tamper with the middle order.
