During an interview on Sunday, the chief selector said, 'The International Cricket Council (ICC) has fixed the last date for the announcement of the 15-member team for the World Cup and considering that Indian selectors are keeping an eye on each player and before the final date, the 15-member Indian team will be announced. "
