Siddle forced his way back into the Australian team for the Ashes earlier this year and will captain the PM's XI against Sri Lanka at Manuka Oval on Thursday.

The Victorian turns 35 next month and will be vying against fellow quicks Pat Cumins, James Pattinson, Josh Hazlewood and Mitch Starc to play Tests against Pakistan and New Zealand this summer.

Siddle has played 67 Tests and he said the fire still burns inside him to represent Australia.

Mark Waugh has declared Steve Smith should be Australia's next Test captain with the former selector labelling the prolific batsman the "logical choice" when Tim Paine's reign ends. Paine will enter his second home summer as skipper next month but at age 34 the captaincy debate is certain to begin in

"If you're not playing cricket to try and play at the highest level then that motivation, and will, to go out there diminishes. I've still got the hunger," Siddle told AAP.

"It was a great Ashes series to play and be a part of over there.

"Another summer back home we'll see how I go, I'm only getting older but I'm still enjoying it.

"As you get older it's a little bit harder in the Australian conditions, the wickets aren't conducive to fast bowling as much as they are in England.

"But it comes down to different grounds.

"I know I'm not going to be looked at for all venues in Australia but there is going to be others that I'm favoured to.

"It just comes down to staying fit and being ready to go when that opportunity comes."

Siddle attributes his 'every game counts' mantra for returning to the Test arena this year, and he won't be the only cricketer in Canberra playing with an eye to the future.

Star batsman Chris Lynn was a surprise omission from Australia's T20 squad that will start the summer against Sri Lanka on Sunday.

"With so much T20 cricket over the next 12 months leading into the World Cup it does give blokes opportunities and, no matter what game it is, you've got to make the most of it," Siddle said.

"This is a great chance for not just (Lynn) but Dan Christian, Fawad Ahmed and Chris Green.

"It gives them an opportunity to impress against an international line-up and you never know what can happen if they perform well."

'I'm not blind': Siddle still striving but knows Test chances slim .
Evergreen paceman Peter Siddle has not given up hope of again wearing the baggy green but knows the odds are against him.The veteran benefited from Australia's rotation policy on English tracks that suited his style but the return to home soil, and the availability of the country's four leading quicks, means Siddle is well down the pecking order.
