MS Dhoni has stepped down as captain of India's limited-overs teams ahead of the ODIs and T20Is against England in January. Dhoni had given up the Test captaincy in December 2014, when he retired from the format after the Melbourne Test.
The BCCI announced on Wednesday that the selection panel headed by former India wicketkeeper MSK Prasad will gather in Mumbai on Friday to pick the Indian team for England series, comprising three ODIs and as many T20 Internationals, starting January 15.
The selectors will also pick the India A squad for two warm-up matches against England to be held at CCI, Mumbai.
However, it remains to seen whether team is chosen by the five-member panel, which was the case earlier, or a three-member committee as suggested by the Supreme Court appointed Lodha panel.
However, the BCCI had announced the new panel in September, with its now sacked president Anurag Thakur and secretary Ajay Shirke defying the court’s diktat.
