    Although the cricketer is just 20-years-old, you won’t come across another young batsman as ready for the elite level than Will Pucovski.

    Batting for Australia in the 2016-17 Under-19 National Championships, Pucovski plundered an unbelievable 650 runs from eight innings, which included four centuries.

    Then in October, the Victorian caught the Australian selectors’ attention when he hit 243 against Western Australia in the first round of the Sheffield Shield.

    The class innings saw Pucovski become the ninth ever batsman to score a Sheffield Shield double century before turning 21. Then aged 20 years and 257 days, the Victorian also became the eighth youngest player in the Shield to make the feat.

    And all seven players before him - Sir Donald Bradman, Clem Hill, Doug Walters, Darren Lehmann, Ricky Ponting, Paul Sheahan and Ian Chappell - went on to make Test hundreds for Australia.

    Retired Victorian fast bowler John Hastings compared the 20-year-old to some of the world’s current best cricketers.

    “I’ve never seen a kid come in and be as ready as he actually is,” Hastings told SEN Breakfast.

    “He’s got all the talent in the world. He’s got so much time.

    “You look at the best players at the highest level, you think of AB de Villiers, Virat Kohli, Joe Root, Steve Smith and these sorts of guys, he’s certainly one of those.”

    Pressure is on him now. Big call from Hastings. Best of luck to him.

    Will Pucovski has had only 8 First class matches. A total of 13 innings. I don't give a crap how talented he might be. This is the type of shit which has gotten ourselves into this mess. Picking potential rather than the now. Punter had 2 years in the shield before being picked. Let alone putting him the fire when he is just getting back from illness. Fairly certain Travis Dean started like a house on fire as well. Where is he now when he got found out by the FC bowlers......

    Should have just been named in the Aussie A squad, like Renshaw. That is the development squad. Happy with Joe Burns. They got one thing right.

    as for the reason they didn't pick Wade. my god how stupid and idiotic. Have they never seen a Hobart Green Top? Wade isn't coming in at 4/400 on the 2nd day. He is coming in(on average) when we have scored 130. But, it is not like Australia would pick Wade to open the batting(wouldn't put it past them though). We are picking him for the lower order. So why not pick someone who actually plays in that position normally.....You know, the thing they didn't do to Finch which worked so well...

    I wish they be honest and I say Wade and Maxwell will never be picked because they are dicks. Because the reasons they give out are the worst.

    Seriously, they are a complete shambles.

    Well if they were to pick exclusively on Shield form then Smarsh should be locked in for the foreseeable future.

    Personally it would appear that Wade is deserving of a spot and it seems demotivating to select a less deserving player on performance based on age profiles/development opportunities.

    Ashton Turner added to the ODI squad in place of Mitch Marsh who is in hospital with gastritis.

    It's only 2 more matches where we'll be undermanned before going HAM with a full squad. Go undefeated from our final 5 games to make the semis.

    In all seriousness though, I don't rate the Sixers much and think we'll win this weekend. Their top order has struggled like ours and pretty sure Denly will be off to England by this weekend.

    Granted that middle order with noodle neck Silk had been solid all season. Hughes and Philippe have been good too.

    Can't let that pleb O'Keefe rape us again with the ball. Curran has been fantastic and Abbott too somehow...

    Hobart will be very tough at home with us undermanned but pretty confident we can still make finals with our run home.

    Not nearly enough credit being given to the Indian bowlers. They've been really really good.

    Great little innings by stoinis there. Could've fizzled out to a sub par score but 288 is solid.

    Happy with that. Not being 5 down at the 18th over mark is a nice change. Handscomb exclusively as a white ball cricketer could be something to persist with.

    Is it enough? Almost certainly not but there's a reason india are second and we're fifth.
