Cricket Aus contracts of Voges, Neville upgraded
Australia batsman Adam Voges and wicketkeeper Peter Neville’s Cricket Australia (CA) contracts were upgraded on Tuesday.
Both batsmen have now played enough Tests over the last few weeks to trigger the hike, reports news.com.au. Voges could potentially be the new Chris Rogers for his side as the veteran is retiring soon. The 35-year-old Voges has been quite disappointing in the ongoing Ashes so far but has had a brilliant last season in Sheffield cricket and could be the middle-order rock that Australia desperately needs. The minimum CA contract sits at $250,000 a year and Voges and Neville would have almost doubled their previous earnings from playing state cricket for Western Australia (WA) and New South Wales (NSW).
