Mumbai:Newly appointed Indian national coach Greg Chappell is scheduled to arrive in the country around the middle of this month to take charge.

"Chappell is expected to arrive around June 15. We would be able to decide on the schedule of the conditioning camp for the Indian probables for the July-August tri-series in Sri Lanka once he arrives," said Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) secretary S K Nair from Thiruvananthapuram.

"We will have a discussion with him and his support staff (including physio John Gloster and trainer Gregory King) before finalising everything," Nair said.

The former Australian captain would also spend time with the wards of the National Cricket Academy (NCA) at Bangalore, the BCCI secretary said.

India's first campaign under Chappell would be the One-day event in Lanka, featuring the West Indies as the third outfit, and their first match has been tentatively scheduled on August 1 though the tournament commences on July 26.

"The schedule of the tournament is expected to be finalised (by Sri Lanka Cricket) within the next few days," Nair added.

Meanwhile, the finance committee of the Board - headed by Tamil Nadu Cricket Association's (TNCA) president N Srinivasan - is to meet in Kolkata on June 8 and the controversial TV rights issue is among the items on the agenda of the one-day sitting, other BCCI sources said.
