Mumbai, Feb 8: Selectors will be meeting in Mumbai on Sunday to pick India's Test squad for the upcoming series against Australia, starting on Feb 22, 2013.

"The All-India Senior Selection Committee will meet on Sunday, 10 February 2013, at the Cricket Centre, Mumbai, to pick the team for the AIRTEL Test series against Australia," BCCI secretary Sanjay Jagdale said in a release.

"The team will undergo a preparatory camp at the NCA, Bengaluru, from 15 February 2013 to 18 February 2013."

Preparatory camp at NCA also suggests that young pacers will get an opportunity to bowl to Team India during the net session.

"The BCCI had conducted Open Trials for fast bowlers across the country, last year. The best bowlers were shortlisted and sent to the regional academies at Mumbai, Chennai and Mohali for advanced training," Jagdale said.

"This list was then trimmed further, on the basis of the feedback of the coaches at the academies.

"The bowlers in the final list will bowl to the Indian batsmen, during the preparatory camp."

Australia is scheduled to play two warm-up matches before the start of the four-match Test series against India that begins on Feb 22 in Chennai.

The other three Tests of the series are scheduled to be played at Hyderabad (Mar 2-6), Mohali (Mar 14-18) and Delhi (Mar 22-26).
