Ashton Agar hasn't ruled out a recall to the Australian Test team, although he believes his best chance at another baggy green will be as a bowler.

The 23-year-old was thrust onto the Test scene in 2013 for two Tests during the Ashes series, and scored a famous 98 on debut at No.11.

While Agar's name has been thrown up as a possible answer to Australia's all-rounder option given the poor run of form shown by Mitch Marsh, Agar said his priority was to make an impact with the ball.

"My aim is to be a genuine allrounder but I want to contribute really well with the ball," Agar said.

"Talking about a Test chance it's hard to tell, but at the moment it looks like if it was going to come it would be as a spinner.

"I've still got work to do before that happens and I've still got to put consistent performances across the board and bowl really well."

Agar did exactly that against NSW on the weekend in the Sheffield Shield, claiming a 10-wicket haul for just the second time in his career.

The spinner was also elevated to No.5 in the Western Australia batting line-up, and was pleased with his progression with the bat.

"I loved that and I've been working hard towards that," he said.

"That was really good that extra responsibility - I think I respond well to that.

"I want to be the spinner for Western Australia first and foremost but I also want to play a big role with the bat."
