The BCCI on Monday announced that the final Indian squad for the ICC Champions Trophy, to be held in June in England and Wales, will be announced in Mumbai on May 4.

The five-man selection panel headed by Sandeep Patil will prune the list of 30 probables already selected to half its size for the June 6-23 tournament, PTI reported.

The selectors had dropped senior players Virender Sehwag and Harbhajan Singh when they picked the probables on April 6, but have the option to choose players from outside the list, according to an ICC source.

India and South Africa are scheduled to kick off the contest on June 6 at the Sophia Gardens at Cariff, Wales in a Group B match.

India are to take on the West Indies at the Kennington Oval in London on June 11 and then conclude the four-team group engagement on June 15 against arch-rivals Pakistan at Edgbaston, Birmingham.
