Nottinghamshire batsman Adam Voges will miss the final LV= County Championship match of the season having been recalled early to begin the Australian domestic season with WA.
His departure will further deplete a batting order devoid of Alex Hales, Michael Lumb and Samit Patel who have been selected by England for the ICC World Twenty20.
"Adam has commitments in Australia but before he departs we hope he can play a key role against Warwickshire at Edgbaston and Surrey at Trent Bridge," said Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell.
"Our focus is very much on the Warwickshire game next week which we need to win to erode a good chunk of their lead."
Voges' impending departure would leave Newell room to recruit an overseas player although no deal has yet been confirmed.
