Tamil Nadu Cricket Association secretary Ashok Kumbhat said the selectors will be naming the captain for the India 'B' team following Sachin Tendulkar's reluctance to lead the side.

Borde was scheduled to arrive here late this evening.Mr Kumbhat, who addressed a press conference to announce the preparations for the important event in the BCCI calendar, said the flood lighting facility had been readied at the stadium. He said the TNCA had decided to have gates for the matches as 36 leading cricketers in the country would be seen in action in the four matches that included the final. The gates had been moderately priced at Rs 150 (Pavilion), Rs 120 (Terrace), Rs 80 (IOC special), Rs 60 (A Stand) and Rs 20 (B Stand).
