Former Test batsman Adam Voges have been given the honour of being named as the captain of the Prime Minister's XI when they face Sri Lanka next month in Canberra.

The 37-year-old will lead the side in the T20 fixture, as the match serves as a warm-up before the three-match T20I series between Australia and Sri Lanka later that month.

The match will be streamed exclusively on, and will be the main event in a double header that also features a match between Papua New Guinea and an ACT XI.

“It’s a tremendous honour to be selected to captain the Prime Minister’s XI and captain alongside the likes of past greats including Brett Lee, Mike Hussey, Ricky Ponting and Chris Rogers,” Voges said.

“Having played last year, I know how important this fixture is on the Australian cricketing calendar, and it is a great tradition.”

Voges' Test career looks over after losing his spot following Australia's innings loss against South Africa in Hobart last November.

The Western Australian's Test career was one of the best we've ever seen by the numbers however, as the batsman averaged 61.87 in his 20 matches in the baggy green.

“I’m delighted that Adam Voges will be available to Captain the PM’s XI,” said Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull.

“This is my second PM’s XI and I’m looking forward to a fierce contest against Sri Lanka.”
