Perth Scorchers captain Adam Voges has been ruled out for two weeks with a hamstring injury, but he hopes to play again before the BBL finals.
Voges injured his hamstring while batting in Sunday’s 50-run win over the Sydney Thunder. An MRI scan revealed a minor aggravation to a pre-existing left hamstring condition. He first hurt his hamstring in the first Test loss to South Africa in November.
Voge’s has endured a tough few months, dogged by injury and losing his place in the Australian Test side. He has struggled badly during the current BBL campaign, posting scores of two, one, one and three not out. But he remains pivotal to the Scorchers’ line-up, especially with Shaun and Mitch Marsh set to earn call-ups for Australia’s upcoming ODI series.
The Scorchers hope Voges will be available for the home match against the Melbourne Stars on January 14. The team currently sit on top of the BBL06 table with a 3-1 record and they’ll be aiming to continue their hot form in Thursday night’s home clash with the Brisbane Heat.
