Dubai: All important selection committee meeting to select Indian teams for Australia tour is scheduled to be held on Monday. This is the first major meeting of the new selection committee headed by Sunil Joshi.
Speaking to ANI, the BCCI source said that if improvements are known, the teams will be selected after evaluating all the updates related to the injury.
“Yes, Joshi and the team will sit down to select teams on Monday. Not only is this a long tour, but the survival bubble rules should also be kept in mind.
In fact, with isolated rules in mind, Virat Kohli and the boys can be seen playing four Test series against Australia at two venues, Adelaide and Sydney. Sources said the teams could be forced to play in four Tests at two venues.
“The original plan obviously goes to Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane. But if there are problems with the corona virus, we can see the four Tests being played in two locations rather than four. In a situation like this, we see Adelaide and Sydney,” the source pointed out.
The BCCI has already made it clear that the entire unit will be subjected to isolation in a life-saving bubble in the United Arab Emirates before moving to Australia. In fact, the Test players are about to come in as soon as the national selectors announce the squad.
Players for the three formats of Test, ODI and T20I will travel together as it will help maintain the bubble. Regarding the upcoming series, India limited overs opener Shikhar Dhawan recently said that he is confident that he will perform better at Down Under.
“When the time comes you will think about it. It takes 10-15 minutes to think about it. When you are experienced, you go and do better, you have that confidence. I hope I go there and do better,” he told ANI on Friday.
