Australian batsmen David Hussey and Adam Voges will perform duties as Nottinghamshire's two overseas players for the 2011 county season.

Voges is set to start the season while Hussey will then take over in June and both players will be available for the duration of the Friends Provident t20 competition.

Hussey will then remain with Nottinghamshire, reigning county champions, for the remainder of the season.

"Adam and David made big contributions for us last season and the prospect of pairing them in the Friends Provident t20 is something that we’re very excited about," Nottinghamshire Director of Cricket Mick Newell said.

"It is very difficult to secure a player for an entire season but these two have established themselves as our preferred options and their availability suits us."

"Winning the Championship with Nottinghamshire was a major highlight of my career and I am looking forward to returning to Trent Bridge and picking up where I left off," said Voges.

"Being in the same Nottinghamshire team as David Hussey will be a strange experience for me because it has been one or the other in recent seasons but we both share a real affinity for the club."

Hussey added:  "I’ve built a great relationship with Mick Newell and all of the players at Notts and I am looking forward to spending more time at Trent Bridge in 2011.

"It’s great that Notts give me a regular opportunity to play county cricket and I want to help the team to make a push in all three competitions."

Nottinghamshire are 4/1 to retain their County Championship title in 2011 with
