Brad Hodge hasn't quite given up hope of a trip to England this winter, and may play for Victoria in a late bid to make the Ashes squad.

Speaking to the Cricinfo website, Hodge - who represented his country in six Tests - said he should have played more for Australia in his prime, but didn't enjoy the benefit of a rotation policy at the time.

"Would I like to play for Australia? Of course, everyone would," Hodge said.

"I probably deserved to play a little bit more when I had the opportunity. It seems that there seems to be a lot more rotating players then when I was in my prime.

"I am still playing good enough to represent Australia I think. But I do believe that my opportunity is passed. Having said that I am considering after this tournament, to go back to four-day cricket and have a quick shot at trying to make the Ashes team."

Victoria's selectors have reportedly discussed the possibility of Hodge playing in the final three Sheffield Shield matches of the summer, against Queensland, New South Wales and Tasmania.

Hodge, 38, is currently plying his trade in the Bangladesh Premier League after impressing for Melbourne Stars in the Big Bash League. 

Despite his form, national selector John Inverarity described the prospect of Hodge being selected for Australia's T20 team as "unlikely".

Hodge has not played Test cricket for Australia since 2008.
