Sydney: Retired Test cricketer Adam Gilchrist will return to the field to play in an 'All-Stars' Twenty20 match against Australia, officials said Monday.

The big-hitting Gilchrist will be part of the Australian Cricketers' Association's (ACA) All-Stars team to play against the national side in Brisbane on November 14, Cricket Australia said.

Organisers refused to comment on the make-up of the rest of the All-Stars team, saying only it would include "returning icon players".

"Adam Gilchrist, will play as part of the ACA All-Stars, a team selected by their peers at the end of last season," a Cricket Australia spokesman said.

"They will be up against a full-strength Australian XI."

It has been suggested that the recently retired fast bowler Glenn McGrath and ACA president Darren Lehmann will form part of Gilchrist's team.
