Australian cricketer Adam Voges has expressed his retirement plans from international cricket as he has not been selected in the national Test squad. The 37-year-old suffered a head injury during a Sheffield Shield game after being hit on the head by a fierce bouncer.
Voges has a phenomenal Test average of over 61 in his not so big Test career of 20 Tests. The Western Australia skipper is currently playing in the Big Bash League (BBL) for the Perth Scorchers and will be decided about his future after the conclusion of BBL and Sheffield Shield.
During an exclusive chat with Radio 6PR, Voges said, “I will sit down at the end of this summer and work out whether that’s it for me, or whether I think I’ve got another year. It will come down to whether I think I am performing well enough and whether I’m enjoying it, whether the body will hold and whether there are some young guys who need opportunities."
He further added, “I’m realistic enough to know that my form didn’t warrant me getting back in the side and at my age, I’m probably not getting back in at this stage."
Voges concluded by talking about his concussion, he said, “There’s been an odd headache or two and a little bit of dizziness every now and then. I’ve been assured that there’s nothing too sinister about it all."
