Pucovski shouldn’t be anywhere near the Test side. For a good while
Why not? All of you mental health experts need to take a break. He has said he has worked really hard on his health this year and stated that he is ready for Test cricket should the selectors call. That's enough for me to want to see a 'once in a generation batsman' play for Australia

Pucovski is still way to weak against the short ball to succeed as an opener long term but willing to try it, think he's ready. If he's not there mentally heyll say so.

I don't know him but have heard directly from guys in the Vic set up that are skeptical he'll ever "get his head right". It's enough for me to have doubts.

“guys in the Vic set up”

sounds like “palace insiders” or “palace sources” in Women’s Weekly.

Bring in Josh Inglis for Carey who'll be playing T20's during the first A game (assume they'll release Green from T20 bench)

Also Khawaja or Renshaw on standby for the young Marsh, depending on how they keep batting vs NSW today ;)

Head and Wade have done enough to hold their spots, which were almost locked in anyway. Pucovski now putting pressure on Burns.
