Cricket Australia (CA) said on Tuesday that there will be a delay in taking a decision on the availability of Will Pukowski in the fourth and final Test against India so that this opener gets a full chance to prove his fitness. Pukowski’s shoulder bone has partially slipped.
CA stated that Pukowski had a shoulder injury and his shoulder joint had partially slipped. A CA spokesperson told Cricket.com AU, “He will be in rest and rehabilitation for the next two days. Only then will the decision be taken to play him in the fourth Test.
