Indian team to be picked on July 2

Mumbai: The Indian squad for the four-Test series against England, which is the first part of the upcoming tour, would be picked on July 2, Cricket Board sources said on Thursday.

“The squad would be picked in Chennai on July 2,” the sources told PTI.

Incidentally, July 2 is the last day of the scheduled second India-West Indies Test in the current series and will be played at the Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Two members — Surendra Bhave and Narendra Hirwani — of the five-man selection committee, headed by K. Srikkanth, are currently in the West Indies watching the Test series and are expected to join the discussions via tele-conference along with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and coach Duncan Fletcher. The Indians conclude their tour of the Caribbean with the third and final Test scheduled at Roseau from July 6 to 10. Quite a few key members of the Indian team that won the World Cup on April 2 are missing from the touring party in the West Indies.

Senior batsman Sachin Tendulkar had opted out of the entire tour to spend time with his family while regular openers Virender Sehwag and Gautam Gambhir, as well as pace spearhead Zaheer Khan, pulled out due to injuries. Tendulkar has made himself available for the entire England tour. — PTI
