The incident took place in the 13th over of the second innings of Australia A. Tyagi decided to bowl a well-directed short ball and Pucovski got himself into a tangle while facing it. He tried to sway away to miss the bouncer but got a bit late as he slashed his bat as well. But the ball ended up hitting the top of his helmet only to lob over the slip cordon.

Though the ball went to the boundary, thing were looking quite concerning at the striker’s end as Will Pucovski was on his knees looking in some serious pain. He didn’t look comfortable at all and had to be attended by the physio. After assessing him for some time, the batsman decided to walk off and the scenes, even in the Indian camp, seemed worrisome.
