Quiney thrilled as Pucovski joins exalted Aussie cricket list


Former Victorian batsman Rob Quiney has lavished praise on promising young batsman Will Pucovski after his stunning double century against Western Australia.

Pucovski complied a magnificent 243 in the Vics’ Sheffield Shield encounter against the Warriors, becoming just the ninth player in Shield history to score a double ton before the age of 21, joining the likes of Don Bradman, Ricky Ponting, Ian Chappell, Darren Lehmann and Doug Walters.

Quiney says the 20-year-old is destined for higher honours as his career progresses.

“I’m so happy for him,” Quiney told SEN Afternoons.

“I think everyone in the Victoria setup and especially the junior pathway setup are so happy for Will.

“Speaking to a couple of the boys over there, they said the first day was quite challenging, there were divots in the pitch and it was quite challenging to bat on.

“For someone to come out and make 200 on a wicket that was challenging to bat on at number three, hats off to him - he has a massive future ahead of him.”

It was Pucovski’s second Sheffield Shield ton for the Victoria after hitting 188 against Queensland at the MCG last summer.
