Trevor Hohns explains decision to omit Will Pucovski from Cricket Australia contract list

  Trevor Hohns explains decision to omit Will Pucovski from Cricket Australia contract list He's the likely partner for David Warner for this year's Ashes series against England - but rising star Will Pucovski has missed out on a Cricket Australia contract. With the announcement made of a 17-man list for a central contract with CA, Pucovski was one of the big omissions alongside Travis Head and Matthew Wade. The 23-year old made his Test debut against India over the summer and performed well, before sustaining an injury to his shoulder that has required surgery. Despite this, many expected Pucovski to gain a contract due to the fact that he is the front-runner to open the batting later this year.

“I’d like to thank the board, senior management and staff for the opportunity to lead and work with them over the last three years," Ingleton said in a statement.

"Our people are an outstanding group of dedicated professionals who are passionate about seeing cricket continue to thrive in this state.

The boards of the Melbourne Stars and Melbourne Renegades were dissolved in 2019 and re-integrated into Cricket Victoria.

While in May 2020, Cricket Victoria was forced to announce a number of job cuts due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

At the time, Ingleton said the decision was made to help deal with the financial impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“We are not immune to the impacts of coronavirus. It has already disrupted the conclusion of the 2019-20 cricket season and is likely to continue to impact our ability to deliver cricket at community level," Ingleton said in a statement.

"In addition, there are a range of potential future commercial and financial risks to Victorian cricket that we need to have contingencies for.

“Faced with a projected funding cut from Cricket Australia and the need to source principal sponsors for our BBL teams in what is a challenging economic environment, it is clear we need to take appropriate action to mitigate these risks.”

Looking back at Ingleton's time in charge, Cricket Victoria chair Dr. David Maddocks is thankful for the leadership he has shown in the role.

"The season we have just completed has come with some extraordinary challenges, but the organisation is well-positioned to recover from the COVID impacts and reinvest in Victorian cricket."

The changes are not too dissimilar to what has been seen at Cricket NSW in recent months.

A number of changes have been made in that organisation including the removal of Jodie Hawkins as the General Manager of the Sydney Sixers, a move that has left many in the game scratching their heads.

Cricket NSW also cut the number of executives working under CEO Lee Gorman from nine to four.

Cricket Victoria has appointed Nick Cummins as Interim CEO.

Cummins is currently the General Manager of BBL, Commercial and Marketing at Cricket Victoria and will be in charge while the organisation undertakes an "extensive recruitment process" to find Ingelton's replacement.
