Lee eyeing a return in ODI team

Australian pace bowler Brett Lee who has had a long layoff due to injury is aiming to make a return in the Australia ODI team when Sri Lanka tour Down Under later in October for a Twenty20 and a three-match ODI series.

The 33-year-old paceman, who has suffered a series of injuries over the last one-and-half-years, last played a one-dayer in India in October, 2009.

"I will try and play a couple of one-dayers for the Blues over the next couple of weeks and then look to try and play against Sri Lanka towards the end of October," Lee said.

However, Lee has no intentions of returning to Test cricket for now.

"When I say I don't want to be part of Test cricket any more, it's not because I don't like it. It's the time of my life where I want a bit of change through body, through lifestyle," Lee was quoted as saying by the Australian Associated Press (AAP).

"I've loved every single moment of Test cricket, but you have to draw a line in the sand somewhere, you won't be seeing me making that (Test) comeback, definitely not," said Lee, who retired from the five-day version earlier in 2010.

Australia is scheduled to clash against Sri Lanka in a T20 match on October 31 at Perth, which will be followed up by a three-match ODI series.

Lee also missed out the World T20, but is all set to return to action in a Sydney grade game this weekend.
