Android New Date Picker - Sendkeys Not working

I could not use sendKeys in this kind of picker.
I am now tapping the > keys shown in view to navigate and select the desired date. But this fails in automation schedules as the current date is changing daily.

Is there any way to use sendKeys directly to select the date?

or is this a bug?

MobileElement el = findElement(“ClassName”, “com.android.internal.widget.ViewPager”);
el.sendKeys(“12 April 2020”)

Am I missing any patterns here? Or is this a feature not supported yet??

Hey @Bala_Kumar did you find solution for this?

This is only possible with Espresso driver
