Sydney - Veteran fast bowler Brett Lee has been named despite injury concerns in Australia's squad for next month's ICC World Twenty20 in the Caribbean.

Lee, 33, has played only one match, taking 0-39 for King's XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League, since returning this month from a serious elbow injury. He won selection on Tuesday ahead of the in-form Ryan Harris.

Test incumbent Mike Hussey was also included in the squad ahead of left-hander Travis Birt, while Daniel Christian has held his place as an all-rounder.
 
Australia must finish top of a group also including Pakistan and Bangladesh to avoid going out in the first round for the second tournament in a row.

Their opening game is against Pakistan on May 2 in St Lucia before facing Bangladesh on May 5 in Barbados.

The tournament runs from April 30 to May 16.

Australia squad:

David Warner, Shane Watson, Michael Clarke (captain), Cameron White, David Hussey, Michael Hussey, Tim Paine, Steven Smith, Daniel Christian, Brad Haddin (wk), Brett Lee, Dirk Nannes, Mitchell Johnson, Nathan Hauritz, Shaun Tait
