Adam Voges has confirmed that he will come up against an international team for the final time when he captains a Prime Minister's XI versus Sri Lanka on Wednesday.

Voges stated last month that his Australia career was probably over after he was dropped from the Test squad during the series defeat against South Africa last November. The 37-year-old batsman has accepted that he will not force his way back into the squad and will end his Test career with an incredible average of 61.87 - which has only been bettered by the great Don Bradman.

Speaking on the eve of a day-night match at Manuka Oval, Voges said: "This (the match against Sri Lanka) will be it for me.

"I'm certainly looking forward to getting out there and playing this game. I've had an amazing couple of years with Australia with the Test team and I've loved every minute of it. I see this as a last opportunity to play against an international team and I'm certainly looking forward to that."

Voges made 1485 runs in the longest format, scoring five centuries in 31 innings after making his debut in June 2015.
