Mental health issues sideline Pucovski
One of Australia's most promising young batsmen Will Pucovski will be sidelined from cricket for an indefinite period due to mental health issues, officials said.
The 20-year-old smashed a superb 243 for Victoria against Western Australia last week, putting him on the radar of Test selectors.
But he was left out of their Sheffield Shield clash this week against New South Wales.
In a statement late Friday, Victoria team management said he was "currently receiving treatment for a mental health-related illness".
