Voges and Hussey Keen To Share Overseas Role
Adam Voges hopes to find a way to continue sharing his role as Nottinghamshire’s overseas player with fellow Australian David Hussey.
Voges will return to the Notts side to face Somerset at Taunton from Friday after returning from Australia’s A series against Pakistan.
The duo top Nottinghamshire’s LV County Championship batting averages this season and have deputised for each other when international commitments have dictated.
“David did a tremendous job whilst I’ve been away and he picked up where he finished off last time and played some magnificent innings,” said Voges.
“We both thoroughly enjoy being here and if the arrangement where we share the role can work then great. I’m delighted to be back and there’s a lot of cricket to be played between now and the end of the season
“I had a solid series with Australia A so hopefully that puts me in good stead for the rest of the Notts season.”
Hussey signed off with a first innings 189 in Nottinghamshire’s LV County Championship draw against Yorkshire and has vowed to return to Trent Bridge in the future.
“I’ll definitely be back,” said Hussey
“Whether it’s next year or the year after, I’m not sure, but at some stage I will be back at Trent Bridge. It’s always a good place to play and a great bunch of players to play with.
“Hopefully there’s more wins to come for Notts and they can bring home the Championship because they’ve got a lot of match-winners in the squad and a lot of bowling depth.
“Adam is a great player and hopefully he can come in, score runs, and help the push between now and the end of season.”
