Former Australian Test star rules himself out of Ashes

12:23 pm on 14 December 2010

The former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has ruled out rejoining the national side as they try and get their Ashes campaign back on track, saying it'll be a cold day in hell before he plays Test cricket again.

Lee arrived in Wellington last night to join the Firebirds for their domestic 20/20 campaign and will play in today's clash against Auckland at the Basin Reserve.

The paceman is looking to use the HRV cup as a platform to force his way back into the Australian side for the one day world cup in February, but has categorically ruled making a Test comeback.
