India"s World Cup squad will be picked in Mumbai on April 15. The meeting is likely to be attended by Virat Kohli, with the India captain scheduled to lead Royal Challengers Bangalore in their away match against Mumbai Indians on the same evening.

Although the deadline set by the ICC to announce squads for the World Cup is April 23, it is believed the Indian selectors wanted players to have extra time to mentally prepare themselves for the tournament that India last won in 2011 at home.

MSK Prasad"s, chairman of India"s selection committee, had pointed out as early as February that his panel had shortlisted a pool of about 20-odd players from which the final 15 would be picked. "Maybe one spot might go to the last minute, otherwise we are very clear about the rest," Prasad had told ESPNcricinfo in an interview.
