‘This will be it for me’: Adam Voges announces retirement

"I see this as a last opportunity to play against an international team and I'm certainly looking forward to that."


Australian batsman Adam Voges has decided to quit international cricket at the age of 37.


The opening batsman announced his decision before he is set to lead Prime Minister’s XI against Sri Lanka on Wednesday.


"This will be it for me," Voges said. "I'm certainly looking forward to getting out there and playing this game. I've had an amazing couple of years with Australia with the Test team and I've loved every minute of it.


"I see this as a last opportunity to play against an international team and I'm certainly looking forward to that."


Voges last donned Australian colours in November during the second Test against South Africa before being replaced by Peter Handscomb, who scored a fifty on debut, for the day-night Test.


He debuted in the format in 2015, aged 35, and piled up 1,485 runs at an average of 61.87 — second highest in the format behind the legendary Don Bradman. On his Test debut, Voges became the oldest debut centurion when he scored an unbeaten 130 against the West Indies. He hit five centuries, two double centuries, and four fifties.


Voges made one-day international and T20 international debut in 2007 against New Zealand. He averages 45.78 and 46.33 in the formats respectively.
