Indian selectors Vikram Rathour and Saba Karim had long discussions with skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni and senior batsman Virender Sehwag and kept a close watch on the side's preparations for the dead rubber against Pakistan here on Sunday.

The five selectors will meet here after the match to pick the team for the five-match one-day international series against England. Rathour and Saba had a long chat with Dhoni, who is under pressure following the team’s dismal performance since the 2011 tour of England, on the sidelines of the net session at the Feroze Shah Kotla.

The two selectors also also had a one-on-one with out-of-form Sehwag twice during the day. Before Sehwag went into bat he spent some good 10 minutes with the selectors and he was seen having some serious discussion with Rathour during practice.
