Batsman Adam Voges has hailed the influence of state coach Justin Langer, after Sunday's maiden century in the fifth and final ODI against the West Indies in Melbourne.
Recalled to the squad as cover for the injured Michael Clarke and George Bailey, Voges marked his return to the XI with an unbeaten 112 in a 17-run win - and five-nil series win.
His 106-ball vigil featured 10 boundaries and two handsome sixes, and largely offered the national selectors food for thought. The 33-year-old Voges has been the ultimate fringe player since his 2007 debut. He has played 17 of a possible 164 ODIs, and never more than three in a row.
"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 Western Australia has had in the recent month or so but for my form as well," said Voges.
"He, along with my batting coach Wayne Andrews, have just tinkered a little bit with my technique. We did that just before the Big Bash and managed to gain a bit of confidence just before the Big Bash and have carried on since then, which has been great."
The talented right-hander remained realistic about the opportunity to secure an extended run in the ODI team, though. Despite Sunday's success, Voges will fall down the pecking order when Bailey and Clarke return.
"All I can do is make every opportunity count as best I can. I don't know when that next opportunity will come. Hopefully I'll play on Wednesday in the Twenty20 International against the West Indies and hopefully score some more runs again. I'll take it as a game-by-game proposition at the moment," he concluded.
