Assistant coach Andrew McDonald backs rookie opener Will Pucovski to put in a good show too

David Warner could play the third Test against India even if he’s not back to full fitness while trust will be put in Will Pucovski to determine whether he is ready for a debut in Sydney.

The pair were added to Australia’s squad on Wednesday, with Joe Burns dropped after his extended run of poor form, but they still have some hurdles to cross before one or both are included in the XI.

Warner is recovering from the groin strain he sustained in the second ODI against India at the end of November while Pucovski has been sidelined since suffering his latest concussion when playing against the Indians in a warm-up match in early December.

With Burns omitted there will have to be at least one change at the top of the order and there could yet be two with Matthew Wade returning to his middle-order role which could leave Travis Head under pressure for his spot.

Head coach Justin Langer flagged during the second Test that while Warner was batting without problems there were still some issues around his overall mobility, but such is the dynamic he brings to the top of the order and the need for Australia to impose themselves on the India attack that every effort will be made to include him.
