Maintaining that it`s not the end of the road for seniors like Zaheer Khan, BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel on Thursday said the Indian Test squad for the upcoming series against West Indies was selected keeping in mind the busy international schedule next year.
The senior selection committee of the BCCI headed by Sandeep Patil will meet in Chennai at the end of this month to choose the Indian squad for the one-off T20 game and subsequent ODI series against Australia scheduled to be held next month.
Indian selectors will have a lot to discuss and deliberate in the wake of the national cricket team`s pathetic show in Australia when they meet here tomorrow to pick the squad for next month`s Asia Cup in Bangladesh.
The announcement of the Pakistan cricket squad for the forthcoming tour of Bangladesh has been delayed after differences erupted between the national selection committee and governing board members of the PCB.
When the selectors rested many senior players and announced a fresh-look Team India under the captaincy of Gautam Gambhir against a spirited New Zealand, many thought the decision would backfire against a team which looked more convincing than India in the Test series.
