Highly-rated Australia batsman Will Pucovski, who will turn 21 on Saturday, has been released from the Test squad playing Sri Lanka due to mental health concerns, the country's cricket board said on Friday.
Pucovski has played just eight first-class matches but scored 243 for Victoria earlier this season before he opted to take a break from the game to receive treatment for a mental health-related illness.
