Not only that, first two of those four-day games will start with the World Cup at its business end with the second match getting underway on July 14 the date of World Cup final. <p></p> <p></p>"There's no definitive date as yet but it will be as late as possible and we are certainly looking at a couple of those Australia A four-day games before naming the Ashes squad," Trevor Hohns, national selector, was quoted as saying by <em>cricket.com.au</em> on Saturday. <p></p> <p></p>The selection panel comprising Hohns, coach Justin Langer and Greg Chappell will be keeping a close watch on several tournaments including Australian domestic competition [Sheffield Shield], Indian Premier League, A team's tour of England, County Championship as they make their team selections for the World Cup followed by the Ashes series in England. <p></p>"We're certainly keeping a good eye on everything because it's just not the World Cup, that's the first one, then there's the Ashes but we've also got Australia A going over there as well," Hohns said. <p></p> <p></p>He added, "It's going to be a complicated time, it's unprecedented to have that many teams all going to England. So we've got to make sure in Australia A we've got players playing who are contenders for the Ashes squad, also have some in there that are potential cover for any injuries that may occur in the World Cup. It's a very interesting exercise."
