Australian cricketers dash off to join IPL inspite of security concerns

There will be no rest for Australian cricketers Shane Watson, Mike Hussey, Ryan Harris and Doug Bollinger, as they will be heading to India for participation in the third edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty-Twenty tournament.


Sydney, Apr.1 : There will be no rest for Australian cricketers Shane Watson, Mike Hussey, Ryan Harris and Doug Bollinger, as they will be heading to India for participation in the third edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) Twenty-Twenty tournament.

Last month, the Australian players were caught in a security furor after a threat from a militant group linked to al-Qaeda raised the prospect of mass withdrawals.

But the threat was not credible, according to the Australian government, and the arrival of the last four Australians proves the rich show will go on in all but the most extreme circumstances, reports The Age.

Still, some Australian players already in India have reported concerns about safety arrangements to their union at home. One team bus was stranded on a bridge for 90 minutes, while other concerns have been raised about team hotels.

"I don't know if the security issue really ever goes away," the paper quoted Australian Cricketers Association boss Paul Marsh, as saying.

"There are concerns no matter where we tour. We are now just playing a monitoring role on behalf of the players, which we'll continue to the do for the rest of the tournament," he said.
