Middlesex County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that Adam Voges has signed a contract to play t20 cricket for the Club in 2013. Voges is available for all of Middlesex’s Group matches in June and July in 2013, as well as the quarter-finals and Finals Day should the Club qualify.
Voges, who has made 19 limited over appearances for Australia, is currently playing for Perth Scorchers in Australia’s domestic t20 competition, The Big Bash. As well as playing county cricket for Nottinghamshire and Hampshire he has gained t20 experience at the Indian Premier League with the Rajasthan Royals. In a t20 career spanning over 100 appearances he has scored more than 2,500 runs at an average of 32, with a strike-rate of 131.
Commenting on the signing of Voges Middlesex CCC’s Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, said: “In 2012 we played some decent t20 cricket but seemed to lack a bit of experience and nous in crucial match situations. It cost us at least a couple of games. The signing of Adam will hopefully help us to remedy that problem.
“Adam has an excellent track-record in all forms of the game but particularly in t20 cricket. His experience will be invaluable and everyone I have spoken to tells me he is a top bloke. We are all looking forward to working with him and improving our t20 cricket in 2013.”
On signing for Middlesex, Adam commented: "I am thrilled to have signed with Middlesex to play for them in this season's t20 campaign.
"To have the opportunity to play in front of the country’s biggest t20 crowds at a venue like Lord's Cricket Ground is an exciting prospect, and I'm looking forward to helping the Panthers succeed in this year’s competition."
