I'm done in terms of international cricket: Adam Voges

By Rashmi Nanda -

Adam Voges, the Australian batsman has admitted that his international career is finished by saying "done in terms of international cricket". 

Out of favor Aussie batsman was omitted for Australia's third pink ball Test against South Africa in Adelaide after being struck at the back of the helmet while trying to avoid a Cam Stevenson bouncer during Western Australia's Sheffield Shield clash against Tasmania at the WACA Ground in Perth November 2016.

He was also ignored for the Pakistan series as well has not been selected for the upcoming tour of India.

Voges told cricket.com.au, "I'm done in terms of international cricket. I can probably acknowledge the fact I'm not getting back in the side. I'm realistic enough to understand my performances weren't up to scratch in my last few Tests and we lost those games which means there is always going to be change. There was only one person to blame and that was me."

As Voges has played 38 limited-overs games for Australia, stated that he's satisfied with his career. Two years ago, he was also thought that he could never play Test cricket but played 20 Tests, which is the great thing for him.

Adam stated, "Being such a late starter it was good to get an opportunity at all because two years ago I probably thought I was never going to play Test cricket. So to be able to play 20 Test matches and get that Baggy Green I worked so hard for over a long period of time is something I'll look back on very fondly when it all finishes up."

In case Voges doesn't get a chance to play another Test for Australia, then in this situation, he would end his 20- Test career with an outstanding average of 61.87, which is the second best in Test history after Donald Bradman.

In February, when Australia host Sri Lanka in a Twenty20 clash, in that game the right-hander will captain the Prime Minister's XI. The 37-year-old made his Test debut against West Indies in 2015.
