Adam Voges, Australian batsman, announced his retirement from international cricket on Tuesday (February 14).

"This will be it for me," Voges said.
"I'm certainly looking forward to getting out there and playing this game. I've had an amazing couple of years with Australia with the Test team and I've loved every minute of it. I see this as a last opportunity to play against an international team and I'm certainly looking forward to that." The Western Australia batsman has played 20 Tests, scoring 1485 runs at an average of 61.87 - second highest average in Tests after Don Bradman (Among batsmen who have played at least 20 Tests).
