After an embarrassing series against Sri Lanka, there’s not a single member within the Australian setup who is not under the scanner. The Kangaroos, who went into the series with the test mace by their side, were completely humiliated by an inexperienced Sri Lankan unit. None of the Australian batsmen could be at ease, as the host’s spinners made a complete mockery of the then number one test side.

 

Veteran batsman Adam Voges has a message for the selectors and he maintains that the management must have faith in the current batting lineup. Voges admitted that Australia performed poorly in Sri Lanka, but backed the current test setup to do well.

 

“I’ve given the selectors the opportunity to leave me out if they wanted to, with how I’ve performed in Sri Lanka,” said Voges. “Hopefully, they keep the faith with me. I still think I’ve got plenty to offer. I take a lot of confidence out of what I was able to do last summer, and really the form and the run that I’ve had over the last couple of years, hopefully, the last three Tests have just been a small blip on what’s been a pretty good couple of years.”

 

The right hander admitted that the Australians couldn’t do much against the guile of Rangana Herath. “We didn’t have a lot of answers for him, to be honest,” Voges said. “He has very subtle variations with his release points, his pace, where he stands on the wicket. But ultimately the ball seems to end up relatively in the same area. Some spin, some don’t. And he’s just very crafty. In conditions that suit him, like they did over there, he’s certainly a handful.”

 

Voges though was pretty optimistic about the home season to follow. “The first home Test for the summer is here at the WACA and obviously, conditions are fairly different to what we’ve just experienced,” Voges maintained. “I take a lot of confidence out of what I was able to do last summer, and hopefully get that opportunity here in Perth at my home ground, somewhere that I’ve grown up playing and know the conditions really well.”
