London:Former Indian captain and International Cricket Council (ICC) Cricket Committee chairman Sunil Gavaskar will announce on Monday in Mumbai the list of players for ICC World XI squad to take on Australia in the Super Series contest to be played in Australia later this year.

The players picked for the 30-man Test and One-day International squads will be announced at the Cricket Club of India (CCI), an ICC statement said in London on Thursday.

ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed said, "The journey towards the Johnnie Walker ICC Super Series begins when we find out the names of the 30 players selected for the initial ICC World XI squads."

"I have no doubt there will be some surprises and some disappointments and I cannot wait to find out who has made the cut."

Former players Mike Atherton, Richard Hadlee, Clive Lloyd, Jonty Rhodes and Aravinda de Silva will join Gavaskar to choose from the cream of the world's cricketing talent to take on Australia in the inaugural Super Series.
