Profile

An attacking batsman who seemed destined to go through his career without a baggy green, Adam Voges finally earned one at 35 years of age, and became the oldest man in Test history to score a century on debut. His unbeaten 130 against West Indies in Dominica also ensured that he would be part of Australia's starting XI for the 2015 Ashes series that followed, and although he struggled for impact in the first three Tests, he managed a pair of fifties towards the end of Australia's unsuccessful campaign. Not only did Voges retain the faith of the selectors, after the post-Ashes retirements of Michael Clarke, Chris Rogers, Shane Watson and Brad Haddin, he was even made vice-captain to Steven Smith for the Test tour of Bangladesh in the absence of the newly-appointed vice-captain David Warner due to injury. A respected leader at state level - he was named captain of Western Australia in 2012 having often filled the role previously in a stand-in capacity - Voges was considered by the selectors as the only viable option to captain Australia on that tour if Smith became unavailable. The trip was cancelled due to safety concerns, but the appointment was an indication that Voges could hope for further Test opportunities despite his advanced age, in a side lacking experience.
