Selecting date from a date picker

Hello Guys on my web page there is a date picker and in order to select any date from the date picker this element doesn’t have neither ID nor XPATH when I inspected the element using the FirePath as shown in the below screenshot. If I need to select date from the table then at least the date picker should be selected right? In this scenario even though I selected the date and checked in the HTML code there is nothing to identify the date neither ID nor HREF (so that I can use LinkText). Please advice me how can I select the date from the table now? If there is a class name specified for the date as in the screenshot which locator shall I use to find the element? When I did System.out.println to display the date it is picking correctly. But not able to detect the date element from the date picker.

Selecting date from a date picker

This is my code sample just for selecting the date

//DatePicker is a table.So we have to navigate to each cell
//This is the xpath of calender
WebElement datepicker = driver.findElement(By.xpath(“html/body/div[1]”));
List<WebElement> rows=datepicker.findElements(By.tagName(“tr”));
List<WebElement> columns=datepicker.findElements(By.tagName(“td”));

for (WebElement cell: columns){
//Select 20th Date
if (cell.getText().equals(“20”)){
