Senior India off-spinner Ravichandran Ashwin, all-rounder Washington Sundar and left-arm pacer T Natarajan miss out as they are in Australia on national duty.

The players picked by the men's senior state selection committee of the TNCA also includes medium-pacer Aswin Crist, who last represented the state in February 2018 and returns after recovering from injury.

The selected players will play three practice matches on 19, 20 and 21 December at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in the city.

Chairman of selectors S Vasudevan said the players were selected on the basis of their last year's performance.

"We have chosen the players based on last year's performance. It is a balanced one with a mix of experience and youth," Vasudevan told PTI.

The final squad will be picked on 21 December.

Meanwhile, a TNCA official said they were awaiting word on the actual size of the squad for the tournament from the BCCI.

The BCCI had to postpone the Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy to January 2021 because of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The tournament is set to be played across six states under-bio secure environment from 10 to 31 January.

Tamil Nadu probables: Dinesh Karthik, M Vijay, B Aparajith, B Indrajith, Vijay Shankar, M Shahrukh Khan, C Hari Nishaanth, Pradosh Ranjan Paul, K B Arun Karthik, Akshay V Srinivasan, N Jagadeesan, M Abhinav, Aswin Crist, M Mohammed, G Periyasamy, Sandeep Warrier, S Harish Kumar, K Vignesh, R Silambarasan, J Kousik, R Sonu Yadav, M Ashwin, R Sai Kishore, M Siddharth, L Sathiyannaarayanan and M E Yazh Arun Mozhi.
