Lahore:

Pakistan's national selection committee will meet in Lahore on Friday to name the probables for the ICC Champions Trophy to be held in England in June.

"The chief selector, Iqbal Qasim, has been told by the Pakistan Cricket Board to hold a meeting of its selection committee to name the probables for the Champions Trophy. The participating nations will have to submit a preliminary list of 30 players by April 4 and then the final squad of 15 by May 4," a source told PTI.

The selectors will also examine the reasons behind Pakistan's disappointing tour of South Africa, where they lost both the Test and ODI series.

"The meeting which is to be held on Friday could also see serious discussions on the future of some senior players," the source added.
