Bio

Having debuted for Western Australia in 2002, Adam Voges made headlines with his maiden one-day century in 2004-05, a 62-ball effort which was then the fastest in the country's domestic history.

He also pocketed $50,000 for hitting the sponsor’s sign at North Sydney Oval and, after several impressive seasons in both first-class and one-day cricket for the Warriors, he found himself in Australia’s Test squad for the third Test of the 2006-07 Ashes series.

He didn’t play in that match, but made his ODI debut against New Zealand later that summer and was soon a semi-regular member of Australia’s 50-over side. It wasn’t until 2013 that he scored his first ODI hundred, an unbeaten 112 against West Indies that came despite suffering from a hamstring injury.

Voges finally earned a Test debut at the age of 35 against the West Indies in June 2015.

He hit 130 in that game and established himself as an important member of Australia’s middle order by scoring five centuries and four fifties in his first 18 Tests.

Voges has played overseas for English county sides Hampshire, Middlesex and Nottinghamshire, Indian Premier League side Rajasthan Royals and for Jamaica Tallawahs in the Caribbean Premier League.
