Adam Voges is ready to kickstart his fifth spell with Nottinghamshire in tomorrow’s LV= County Championship Division One clash with Sussex at the PROBIZ County Ground.

The Australian batsman, who has played 15 one-day internationals and four Twenty20s for his country, has arrived at Trent Bridge after a six-week break from cricket.

"A good start is what I'm looking for," Australian batsman Adam Voges, who returns to Notts' squad for the game with Sussex tomorrow, said

Despite his time away from the game, Voges heads into the four-day match on the back of an excellent campaign with Western Australia in which he averaged 54 with the bat.

"I'm probably coming off the back of one of the better domestic seasons I've had back home," he told BBC Radio Nottingham.

"That fills me with a lot of excitement. Hopefully I'm going to bring that over here. A good start is what I'm looking for."

Mick Newell’s team have experienced an excellent start to the season and sit one place behind leaders Warwickshire after winning three and drawing three of their six matches.

"Mick always talks about us playing well in April and May, and then our real challenge is to continue that on especially when we start losing a few guys to higher honours, England Lions and so forth,” Voges added.

"Our batting looks really strong this year and the guys have started well, probably haven't got as many batting bonus points as you'd like but we've been winning games and that's the most important thing.”

Sussex could hand Luke Wright his first championship start of the season after the England limited-overs all-rounder marked his comeback from Indian Premier League duty and illness with a half-century in the Sharks’ Clydesdale Bank 40 victory over Northants on Sunday.
