Voges keen to move past Sri Lanka 'blip'

Sydney - Australia top order batsman Adam Voges once averaged more than 100 in Tests, and feels his poor returns in Sri Lanka recently were an aberration, and that he'll be back in the runs in the coming months.

Voges described his lean run (he top-scored with 48) in the whitewashed Test series as a 'blip', and is sure that he will be free-scoring against South Africa and Pakistan at home this Australian summer.

Voges said on the CA website: "Hopefully, it was just a little bit of a blip. I didn't adjust to the conditions well enough. It was tough work.

"If I had my time again, I may have done a few things a bit differently - backing my sweep shot a bit more, and finding ways to rotate the strike rather than sitting on the crease and defending for long periods of time."

The 37-year-old added: "People always talk about my age and the fact I was a late starter to international cricket.

"But I feel strong. I feel fit. And I'm still loving my cricket. While that's still the case, hopefully I can continue to perform well and, hopefully, there's another big summer to come."

The Proteas go to Australia in November, and until then Voges will focus his attentions on domestic tournaments like the Matador Cup and the Sheffield Shield.
