The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - RACING -

ONE of the most ex­cit­ing young red- ball bats­men around, Pu­cov­ski has been bang­ing the door down in his short ca­reer. A mas­sive 243 against WA last year drew every­one’s at­ten­tion and he’s backed it up with two more red-ball tons since then. His record has per­haps been boosted by play­ing on some help­ful sur­faces in Mel­bourne, a bat­ting av­er­age of 39.05 against pace when bat­ting in the top three is rock-solid, and you’d ex­pect him to im­prove. An­other sea­son of im­prove­ment in the Shield may be the best op­tion, but Pu­cov­ski has the num­bers to de­mand se­lec­tion at a this stage.
