The Indian cricket squad for the forthcoming seven-match one-day series against Australia will be picked in Chennai on October 15.
"The ODI squad is to be picked on the 15th at Chennai," Cricket Board sources told PTI today.
The selection is keenly awaited following the team's dismal display at the ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa where it got knocked out in the preliminary stage itself.
The national selection panel, barring chief selector Krishnamachari Srikkanth, that watched the N K P Salve Challenger Series which ended in Nagpur yesterday would have some options to bolster the under performing team.
The ODI series would start with the day encounters at the Reliance (previously IPCL) Stadium in Vadodara on October 25 and end with the final day/night clash at the D Y Patil Stadium in Navi Mumbai on November 11.
The other matches are scheduled at Nagpur (Oct 28), Delhi (Oct 31), Mohali (Nov 2), Hyderabad (Nov 5) and Guwahati (Nov 8) with all these ties, barring the sixth one in Assam, to be day/night contests. PTI
