Melbourne Stars on Wednesday confirmed of signing the Victorian young batsman Will Pucovski for the 10th season of the BBL.

Pucovski, 22 is yet to make his debut in the KFC Big Bash League and his signing comes over 35 days ahead of the upcoming season.

The youngster has so far been focussing on the red-ball cricket and now the Star have roped him to strengthen their batting lineup.

Melbourne Stars lost to the Sydney Sixers in the finals of the last season which they lost by 19 runs in a rain-curtailed game.

“I’m grateful to the Stars for giving me this opportunity to be involved in the BBL,” Pucovski said. 

“It’s always an exciting competition and I’m looking forward to the opportunity to expand my knowledge with senior players from around Australia and overseas,” he added.

Puckovski made his First-Class debut for Victoria back in 2017 and so far smashed four centuries on his name.

The Stars have already lost two of its important players Peter Handscomb to Hobart Hurricanes and Dan Worrall to Adelaide Strikers.

The team has also been in touch with England’s wicket-keeper batsman Jonny Bairstow, who is currently busy in the Indian Premier League.

“Will is an exceptional young talent who has been talked about at the highest levels for some time now,” Stars coach David Hussey said. 

“While he’s spent the majority of his time so far in red-ball cricket, we know he wants to continue to grow his game in all formats and we look forward to supporting him this season,” he concluded.
