The one name that has been on the screens of statisticians and analysts off late is of Adam Voges. The senior Australian batsman, who is relatively new to test cricket, has already established some mind boggling numbers for himself. During the first test against New Zealand at the Basin Reserve, Voges reached a point where his batting average exceeded the figures of the great man, Sir Don Bradman himself. Voges though, is just playing his 14th test but already has more than 1200 test runs.

However, when Voges was finally dismissed for 239, his average dropped down to 97.46. Voges however, after the day’s play, admitted that he was glad as his average was finally below the three figure mark. “I’m probably happy that I’m out now and it’s gone back under,” Voges said. “I can just get on with playing cricket, I guess. The boys had a bit of fun taking the mickey out of me in the change-rooms but it’s all good. The average was never going to stay there, it won’t stay there, I know that. So it was always going to happen at some stage.”

“I think that I’m giving myself every chance to get in each time I bat and then when I do get in I’m hungry to score runs and score big runs,” he said. “I try and keep it pretty simple. I really enjoyed my partnership with Usman Khawaja the other day, he’s batting brilliantly. He’s in complete control of his game so that made life a lot easier for me,” Voges added.
