CANBERRA, Australia (AP) -- Cricket Australia says test opener Chris Rogers will replace Mike Hussey as captain of the Prime Minister's XI to play England in a tour match at Manuka Oval in Canberra on Wednesday.

Hussey sustained a calf injury while playing for the Sydney Thunder in the Big Bash League Twenty20 competition on Friday.

Rogers had six consecutive half-centuries for Australia in its four-test series against India.

Australia plays England on Friday in Sydney in the first match of a limited-overs international tri-series that also includes India.
