Middlesex County Cricket Club is pleased to announce that Adam Voges will play for the county in next week’s NatWest T20 Blast match against Glamorgan at Richmond on 3 July. Voges is passing through England on his way to play in the West Indies in the Caribbean Premier League, which starts in the second week of July. As preparation he will play for Middlesex's 2nd XI in their game against Hampshire at the Ageas Bowl which starts on Monday.
Voges acted as Middlesex's stand-in overseas player in 2013 when Chris Rogers was playing for Australia in The Ashes. During his time with the club the Western Australian made a positive impression both on and off the field and Middlesex are happy to make the most of this opportunity.
Commenting on Voges' arrival Middlesex County Cricket Club's Managing Director of Cricket, Angus Fraser, said: "We are more than happy to accommodate Adam for a week as he makes his way to the CPL. There is not an abundance of excellent, high quality overseas players out there and we are keen to keep in contact with Adam. Last season Adam filled the void left by Chris Rogers superbly and is the sort of character we want at the club. As we sit here now we do not know of Chris' availability next summer, hopefully he will be playing for Australia in The Ashes. Adam is someone we would seriously consider as an alternative if Chris is unavailable."
