Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting will lead a Prime Minister's XI against the West Indies in January as he attempts to extend his international career into next year's Ashes series.

Ponting was named on Tuesday to captain the Prime Minister's XI in a Jan. 29 one-dayer at Canberra's Manuka Oval which precedes Australia's five one-day internationals against the West Indies. The rest of the Prime Minister's selection will be named in January.

Ponting is eager to play the 2013 Ashes series in England but has failed with the bat in two tests against South Africa this summer, and acknowledged this week that "if I'm not getting runs I might not make the summer out and I definitely won't be in England."
