Rohrer to replace Voges

UPDATED 13 February, 2013 1:03PM AEST | 5

The Cricket Australia National Selection Panel has today advised that Ben Rohrer will replace Adam Voges in the Australia A squad for the first two matches of its VB Series against the England Lions starting in Hobart this weekend.

Voges will return to Perth after tonight’s KFC T20 INTL in Brisbane to await the birth of his second child, with Rohrer called into the squad as his replacement. Rohrer will still play in tomorrow’s RYOBI One-Day Cup clash for New South Wales before travelling to Hobart to join the Australia A squad on Friday.

The five-match series between Australia A and the England Lions will be played in Hobart and Sydney starting this Saturday at Blundstone Arena. All matches will be 50-over encounters.

Both teams will start their preparations for the series in Hobart on Friday.
