The captain for India's three-Test cricket series against Sri Lanka would be namedon Tuesday while the rest of the squad would be picked the following day.

The national selectors will also pick the team for the fourth and fifth one-dayers against South Africa on November 23, Chairman of Selection Committee Kiran More saidon Monday.

The fourth one-dayer is scheduled to be held in Kolkata while the series will conclude in Mumbai with a day-night encounter on November 28.

The selection committee meeting assumes importance for desposed skipper Sourav Ganguly who has been trying to make a comeback to the national team after being dropped from the one-day outfit last month.

The left-hander has had mixed luck in domestic matches after a fine century against North Zone in a Duleep Trophy match recently.

The Bengal batsman has gone on record to say he was willing to play in any position and had no problems in playing under Rahul Dravid.
