Mumbai:

Indian squad for next month's triangular ODI series in Sri Lanka and ICC Champions Trophy in South Africa would be picked on August 16 in Chennai.

"Both the teams would be selected in Chennai on August 16. But the dates of the preparatory camp for the players are not yet finalised. It would be done in a short-while," BCCI sources said.

The tour of Lanka features a tri-series, also involving New Zealand from September 8-14 with the teams playing each other once leading to the final.

Champions Trophy is to be held from September 22 to October 5 and all the teams have already short-listed 30 players which is to be pruned to the final squad of 15.

The Indian team's preparatory camp, in all probability, will be held at the end of August in Bangalore prior to the September 1-8 inaugural BCCI Inter-Corporate Trophy.

The Inter-Corporate trophy will be played in four centres - Mohali, Dharamsala, Vishakhapatnam and Bangalore.
