The Indian squad for the upcoming cricket World Cup in the Caribbean would be selected on February 12 in Mumbai.
The list of 30 probables for the World Cup would be pruned to final 15 members as February 13 is the last day to submit the names to the International Cricket Council, BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah told reporters today.
Before that, the national selectors will meet on Saturday to pick the team for the series against Sri Lanka, who will be playing four one-dayers in India before the quadrennial event.
Sri Lanka will play four ODIs in Kolkata (Feb 8), Rajkot (Feb 11), Goa (Feb 14) and Vishakapatnam (Feb 17).
Shah also said seamer Munaf Patel, who is recuperating from his ankle injury, would play a match against a local outfit on Thursday, following which he will get himself assessed by BCCI's Dr Anant Joshi in Mumbai.
