Will Pucovski has been ruled out of Victoria’s side for their cut-throat Sheffield Shield match against Tasmania this week.
Pucovski, 20, will continue to be monitored following his third concussion of the season, suffered last weekend against New South Wales.
No timeframe has been put on a return for the young gun, who had been concussed several times before this season.
He has been replaced in the 13-man Bushrangers squad by fellow batsman Eamonn Vines.
Victoria take on the Tigers in Hobart from Wednesday in what is essentially a showdown to take on Queensland in the final from March 23.
