A nine-day coaching camp will be held in Bangalore from July 3 to prepare for the Asia Cup, to be held in Sri Lanka, Board of Control for Cricket in India secretary S K Nair said on Sunday.

He said after a meeting of the Selection Committee the Indian team would be selected at the conclusion of the camp on July 11.

The team will leave for the island nation on July 13.

Meanwhile, a fitness-specific conditioning camp for pace bowlers will be held in Bangalore from June 7 to 12.

Those selected for the camp include Ashish Nehra, Ajit Agarkar, Irfan Pathan, L Balaji, Amit Bhandari, Munaf Patel, Avishkar Salvi, Srishanth, S S Paul, S Mathur, S Trivedi, N C Aiyappa, Gagandeep Singh, Jogender Sharma, Mohammed Faizal and T Kumaran, Nair said.

Thereafter, from June 13 to 19, a combined fitness camp will be held, in which some of those who attended the earlier camp will also feature.

This week-long camp would be attended by Sourav Ganguly, Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, Yuvraj Singh, Mohammed Kaif, Parthiv Patel, Anil Kumble, Harbhajan Singh, Murali Kartik, Ramesh Powar, Aakash Chopra, Hemang Badani, Sairaj Bahutule, Zaheer Khan, Ashish Nehra, Ajit Agarkar, Irfan Pathan, L Balaji, Munaf Patel, Amit Bhandari, Rohan Gavaskar and Gautham Gambhir, he added.

Nair clarified that the two camps in June are fitness specific -- and not cricket coaching ones -- and they would be overseen by physical trainer Gregory King.
