Didn’t he get concussed In The field as well?
He's had some weird ones. Copped one at short leg, and another where his bat got stuck in the ground and managed to flip over his bat.

And anybody who suggests it's because of his inability to play a short ball needs to get a clue. Marcus Harris has been badged significantly more over his career and has never suffered from concussion. Some people are simply more susceptible to it.

Yep, the main problem with Will is how vulnerable he has been to getting concussed. Even if he became the best at facing short bowling, he is still going to get hit occasionally. Even Root got badged by Stokes in the nets before the 1st test. Everyone gets hit there to some degree.

It's the main reason I don't think he will make it now. Hopefully the doctors can help a lot with it and I end up being wrong.

2 months until the 1st test on the Pakistan tour and he's only just returning to play and can't throw with his right shoulder yet, so we'd have to hide him in the field.

Bailey has said if he is fit he is a big chance of going to Pakistan.In premier cricket in Melbourne today his game is a late start due to heavy rain late yesterday in some Melbourne suburbs and Melbourne are bowling.It seems it will be a bowler friendly wicket.
