Adam Gilchrist claims this batsman will not get a chance despite a great game

Melbourne: Australia’s legendary wicketkeeper batsman Adam Gilchrist believes emerging batsman Will Pucovski will not find a place in the playing XI for the first Test against India as the selectors are facing pressure to pull out Burns Are hesitating Gilchrist, however, admitted that there are ‘solid reasons’ for feeding Pukowski.

Gilchrist said that despite Pukowski’s strong claim to the Sheffield Shield with two consecutive double centuries, there was a possibility of Australia relying on the tested pair of Burns and David Warner to start the innings.

“It’s just my point of view, but I think the selectors and the team are enjoying the partnership between Burns and David Warner,” Gilchrist said. Pukowski’s claim is strong but he would hesitate to break up this partnership (Warner and Burns) without a very good reason. They believe that they support each other.

Gilchrist said Burns may have failed to play big innings, but the team and selectors understand the importance of his partnership with Warner. Several former players, including former captain Mark Taylor, have sought to give Pukowski a place in the playing XI of the 4-match Test series against India starting on December 17 in Adelaide.

Trevor Hohns and coach Justin Langer, chairman of the selection committee, have indicated that Burns is unlikely to be dropped from the Test squad. Burns has been able to score at an average of 11.4 this year and managed to cross the 20-run mark just once, but last summer he was Australia’s third best scorer by scoring 256 runs at an average of 32.

Also, Tim Paine’s team won the five Tests last summer and made it to the top of the Test rankings. Gilchrist, however, said that the final decision on Burns and Pukowski would depend on the practice match between Australia A and India to be held next month.
