I tried replicating the problem you described but was unable to do so. As you can see in this video I was able to select the mentioned date. Please review the project which I have tested(you can find it in attachments) and tell us what differs in your case. Additionally please specify the version of the controls that you are using.
All the best,
the Telerik team
