Mumbai:

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) selection committee meeting to pick the team for the Asia Cup has been preponed by a day to February 29.

The women's selection committee will also meet the same day to pick the team for the home ODI and Twenty20 series against Australia starting March 12.

"The meetings of the All-India Senior Selection Committee and All-India Women's Selection Committee, to pick the Indian teams for the Asia Cup and the home series against Australia respectively, will be held at the Cricket Centre, Mumbai, on Wednesday, February 29 instead of March 1," BCCI Secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a statement.

In the backdrop of the team's poor display in the ongoing tour of Australia, it remains to be seen how many members of the squad presently Down Under are retained for the Asia Cup to be held in Dhaka from March 11-22.

India are to clash with Sri Lanka in their opening match of the tournament on March 13. The other two teams in the fray are Pakistan and hosts Bangladesh.
