The Indian team for the Emerging Players cricket tournament to be held in Australia from July 20 will be announced on Monday, the Cricket Board (BCCI) said on Thursday.

"The selection committee of the BCCI will meet at Chennai July 6 to select the team for the Emerging Players tournament," Board secretary N Srinivasan said in a statement.

Apart from India, domestic teams from New Zealand, South Africa and hosts Australia will compete in the Twenty20-cum-ODI tournament.

India will take on AIS in a Twenty20 match on the opening day at Redlands CC in Queensland.

Australian Insititute of Sports has already announced its 17-member team, which includes two Indian right-arm pacers, Rahul Shukla and Nizar Niyas, from the MRF Pace Foundation.

Indian state side Karnataka won the inaugural Emerging Players Tournament in 2005, while South Africa won it back-to-back in 2006 and 2007 and New Zealand won it last year.
