Sydney: Veteran batsman Brad Hodge was Thursday named in a strong Prime Minister's XI led by speedster Brett Lee to play England in Canberra next week.

Hodge has not played an international for almost six years but his form for the Melbourne Stars in the domestic Big Bash League has him in line for a call-up to the Australian squad for the World T20 in Bangladesh in March.

Hodge, at 39, is the oldest player in the Prime Minister's squad to play the 50-over day-night match at Manuka Oval on January 14.
