Players who have been performing well in the current Ranji season could get a call into the Indian team, BCCI Secretary Niranjan Shah said on Thursday.
"All the good performers should be considered by the selectors," Shah told reporters reporters on the eve of selection committee's meeting to pick 30 probables for the World Cup and team for the first two match against the West Indies in the home series begining January 21.
About chances of out-of-form players like Virender Sehwag, Shah said "it is for the selection committee to decide".
On a question if Indian cricketers were playing too much cricket, Shah replied in the negative. "Those players whose batting had failed in South Africa are getting a good chance of practice in the Ranji Trophy matches," he said.
"Two home series against the West Indies and Sri Lanka will also be good practice for the players before the World Cup," he added.
Dispelling rumours about the West Indies team pulling out of the series because of some dispute between the players and that country's board, Shah said "as far as I know the West Indies tour is on".
