Following Chris Rogers’ selection in the Australian Test squad for the forthcoming Investec Ashes Series this summer, Middlesex County Cricket Club are delighted to announce that Adam Voges will replace Rogers in the Middlesex side for the matches which Rogers will miss as a result of his international involvement.
Middlesex’s Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, commented…..
"Losing Chris Rogers to Australia for the Ashes is a blow, but we believe Adam Voges will be an excellent replacement.
"Middlesex CCC were aware Chris could be picked for Australia prior to the season and spoke to Adam during our t20 negotiations about the possibility of him replacing Chris should Australia selection or injury arise. Adam was more than happy to fill in and we are delighted to have him on board. Adam continues to show everyone what a quality player he is - he scored a century against Middlesex for Nottinghamshire at Uxbridge last year - and we know he is a top man too.
"Adam was originally signed to play in Middlesex's ten Friends Life t20 group game, which begin immediately after the Champions Trophy, in which he will be representing Australia. The new deal means that he will now play in four LV= County Championship matches and four Yorkshire Bank 40 games too. We look forward to welcoming him on board and know he will fit into our team extremely well."
