Australia's emerging batter Will Pucovski wants to see his name in the Test squad for the Aussies tour of Pakistan in March 2021.
The 23-year-old is returning to cricket after his 10th concussion setback. He will play his first game in almost a year on Saturday in Melbourne club cricket, after returning to batting last month following an October head knock.
The right-handed batter has managed just one Test last January against India when he injured his shoulder. He said that frustration showed the desire and focus was still there to become a career player for Australia, despite the regular setbacks.
"The fire is definitely still burning to make sure I get back there," Pucovski told Australian Associated Press.
"I'd like to say that if I am playing Shield cricket for Victoria (next month) and I've put my name up, I'm ready to go," he added.
"The Pakistan tour is in March, so if I'm doing well and put performances on the board then I can't see why I wouldn't be in line to be selected there."
Pucovski revealed that he had fears of not getting into the side and will have to sit out for longer period but Chief Selector George Bailey has assured that it wouldn't be the case.
"He just said 'mate just make sure you get yourself right, we want you as a sort of long-term player for Australia'," Pucovski said.
"That was pretty awesome to hear ... because you do get worried that with the injury pile up that people are maybe going to give up on you."
It must be noted that Australia are in line to tour Pakistan after 24 years. They will play three Test, three ODIs and a T20I from March 3 to April 5.
