Melbourne: Feb 11, 2013

Australian batsman Adam Voges praised Western Australia head coach Justin Langer for his unexpected return to international career.

Voges spoke about how he had been MCG only three months earlier in turmoil after the Perth Scorchers’ failure in the Champions League campaign and resignation of coach Lachy Stevens and captain Marcus North.

“We pretty much didn’t have a coach, we were bottom of the ladder in both competitions and things weren’t going great in both competitions. It’s amazing how quickly things can change around.I think Justin Langer can take a lot of credit for that, not only for the success WA has had in the recent month or so but for my form as well,” as reported by Sydney Morning Herald.

Voges said scoring 112 not out against the West Indies had been a source of ”relief, elation and excitement”, particularly as he had all but resigned himself to never representing Australia again.

“It had been two years since I’d played my last ODI game. The great thing is that the selectors have brought me back in when I’ve been playing well. The best time to get picked is when you’re scoring runs. You’ve got to make the most of it while it does last but I’m enjoying my cricket at the moment.”

Voges scored his first century in One-Day Internationals (ODI) against the West Indies at Melbourne as Australia completed their clean sweep of the visitors in the five-match series.

“He, along with my batting coach Wayne Andrews, has just tinkered a little bit with my technique. We did that just before the Big Bash and have carried on since then, which has been great.”
