Cricket Australia now completely satisfied with security scenario for Indian tour

Following clarifications from Indian Board officials, Cricket Australia has expressed satisfaction with security arrangements for the current tour of India, despite having earlier raised concerns over Bangalores M Chinnaswamy Stadium, the venue for the second Test, where a series of explosions took place during the Indian Premier League.


Sydney, Sep 29 : Following clarifications from Indian Board officials, Cricket Australia has expressed satisfaction with security arrangements for the current tour of India, despite having earlier raised concerns over Bangalore's M Chinnaswamy Stadium, the venue for the second Test, where a series of explosions took place during the Indian Premier League.

In a letter to Indian Board (BCCI) secretary N Srinivasan, Cricket Australia (CA) chief executive James Sutherland wrote that the advance party that inspected the venues for the Tests and limited overs matches "did have some lingering concerns about the security arrangements in Bangalore".

The party included Australian team manager Steve Bernard and security manager Frank Dimasi, both currently in Chandigarh, the venue for the first Test.

Indian board officials subsequently relayed a more detailed plan to CA, who were then satisfied with arrangements and allowed the tour to go ahead as scheduled, The Sydney Morning Herald reports.

"We're completely comfortable with safety and security and logistics in India with all the five cities we're visiting. We're never going to travel internationally unless we're completely happy with security," a CA spokesman said.

Further assurances were required to reach that level of comfort, as Sutherland made clear in his correspondence.

"With the small explosions outside M Chinnaswamy Stadium during IPL 3, there is obviously some greater sensitivity and awareness about security risks in Bangalore," Sutherland wrote.

The explosions during the IPL, described as low intensity blasts, took place at the outset of a match between Royal Challengers and Mumbai Indians, injuring eight people.

The match went ahead after some delay.
